HOUSTON (AP) – Jorge Polanco had four hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in four runs to lead the Minnesota Twins to their fourth straight win, 9-5 over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
    
Max Kepler and Nelson Cruz had RBI singles around Polanco’s two-run single in a four-run sixth as the Twins built a 7-1 lead. Polanco homered in the eighth.
    
C.J. Cron put Minnesota ahead with a two-run double in the first, and Jason Castro led off the second with a home run that boosted the lead to 3-0.
    
Jake Odorizzi (2-2) won his second straight start, allowing two runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.
    
Houston has lost four of five since a 10-game winning streak. Brad Peacock (2-1) gave up three runs and five hits in six innings. Following a pair of relief appearances, he made his first start since April 7.
    
Josh Reddick hit an RBI single that cut Minnesota’s lead to 3-1 in the fourth, then was thrown out at the plate trying to score on Tyler White’s two-out double as second baseman Jonathan Schoop made the relay from left fielder Eddie Rosario.
    
Carlos Correa pulled the Astros to 7-5 with a three-run homer in the seventh off Ryne Harper.
