Astros hitters held down by Archer in 10-4 loss to Rays

HOUSTON (AP) Outside of one rally, the Houston Astros never had an answer for Chris Archer.

The right-hander struck out 10 in seven innings, Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Houston 10-4 on Sunday.

"We didn't put a lot of pressure on him early," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "He made his pitches. I thought we responded very well in the fourth with the three runs after getting down 4-0. 4-0 with Archer on the mound is a pretty tall task. We get back into it 4-3 with a lot of good at-bats in that inning and then he responded with high-end velocity. ... When he's locked in, he's an elite pitcher. He sort of came in and out of that elite style today and held us at bay."
