Four relievers back McHugh as Astros top White Sox

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- With the Astros having already lost Carlos Correa and Jake Marisnick to significant thumb injuries this season, the last thing Houston manager A.J. Hinch wanted to see was All-Star center fielder George Springer putting his hand at risk on a daring play at the plate.

When Springer emerged no worse for the wear, the smiles everyone shared were a bit tenuous.

Jose Altuve matched his career high for home runs, a four-man bullpen turned in an exceptional performance, and Springer produced an insurance run with his hustle in the Houston Astros' 3-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.
