MLB scores: Astros win sixth straight game; Shohei Ohtani slugs first home run of 2019

Monday's win combined with the Twins losing to the Angels gives the Astros the best record in baseball at 27-15.

From top to bottom, Houston's lineup is a real handful for opposing pitchers, and that has been especially true of late.

Since returning from Tommy John surgery five games ago, Shohei Ohtani has largely struggled at the plate, and that's understandable.

La Stella, a six-year veteran, has doubled his career home run total in 36 games this season.

Gennett is a year younger than La Stella, so he figured it out earlier in his career, plus he showed more power before his big breakout.

Those are Moncada's eighth and ninth home runs of the season, and, as noted, this was his second career multi-homer game.
