Dallas Keuchel to sed seven shutout innings Sunday to help the Astros beat the the Royals 4-2 in Game 3 of the ALDS.The Royals took an early 1-0 lead when outfielder Lorenzo Cain belted a solo shot in the fourth inning. But the Astros rallied, scoring four runs in the next three innings to take Johnny Bench Jersey control of their first home postseason game since 2005.MORE: Best photos from American League Division Series games| Every MLB team's worst postseason memory, revisited| Dear Matt Harvey: Don't throw at Chase UtleyAstros closer Luke Gregerson provided some tense moments in the ninth inning when he gave up a solo home run to Alex Gordon and a hit to Alcides Escobar, putting the tying run at the plate. But hegot Ben Zobrist to ground into a fielder's choice, then struck out Cain to end the game.The Astros now lead the series 2-1.Here areour five takeaways from Game 3:1. Dallas Keuchel is unbeatable at home. The Astros ace entered the postseason with a remarkable15-0 record and 1.46 ERA at Minute Maid Park during the regular seasonand, despite serving up thefourth-inning solo home run toCain, was unflappable in front of his home fans once again Sunday.The AL Ken Griffey Jr. Jersey Cy Young favorite earned his second win of the playoffs after to sing seven innings of one-run baseball with seven strikeouts in Game 3. He tallied 124 pitches, the most so far this postseason, proving he will be able to go the distance to help the Astros.2. Chris Carter came to play. The Astros first baseman has been in and out of the starting lineup this season, as he's struggled with consistency at the plate. He finished the regular season below the Mendoza line, finishing with a .199 average.But Carter put his struggles behind him in Game 3.After lazily jogging to second and into an out on what appeared to be a stand-up double in his first at-bat, he stepped up and smacked another one down the third-base line and made it to second base easily. He then sent an absolute moonshot over the left-field wall in the seventh inning to complete his 3-for-3 day.3. Carlos Gomez is one of the most emotional players in Jay Bruce Jersey baseball, and the Astros are fine with that. The mercurial outfielder has seen his share of controversy since joining MLB in 2007, with exuberant bat flips and unnece saryjawing directed at pitchers, infielders, guys on opposing benches, and even managers.But Houston's young, quiet team needed a spark, so they went out and traded for Gomez before the July31 trade deadline. Despite batting a measly .231 since the All-Star break, Gomez has proven his worth this postseason, highlighted by his RBI-single in the sixth inning Sunday.4. The Royals are getting a taste of their own medicine. It's tough to repeat the succe s of a Cinderella season, like catching lightning in a bottletwice. But the Royals became everyone's favorite team last year as they battled the American League's giants to reach the World Series.This year, the young, inexperienced Astros are giving them a good look in the mirror as the underdog wild-card teamin a position to make a run.5. The Royals' Anthony DeSclafani Jersey lack of an ace is hurting them. It seems as though all good baseball teams have at least one guy they can depend on to win whenever they step on the mound. The Astros have that in Keuchel, the Cubs have Jake Arrieta, the Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, and the Mets have an entire rotation of future aces.But the Royals have a glaring weakne s in the rotation, one Johnny Cueto was supposed to fill when he joined the club before the trade deadline. That has yet to happen, and time is running out.Sunday's starter, Edinson Volquez, was serviceable but paled in comparison to Keuchel. He allowed three earned runs in5 2/3 innings and was credited with the lo s.What's Next: Game 4 at 1:07 p.m., channel TBD The Royals send Game 1 Tom Seaver Jersey starter Yordano Ventura (13-8, 4.08 ERA) back to the mound after lasting just two innings in the series opener to face Lance McCullers Jr. (6-7, 3.22 ERA), who hopes to clinch the series for the Astros.
