TORONTO — George Springer homered twice and tied a career high with five RBI as Houston rocked Aaron Sanchez in his return from the disabled list Friday night, propelling the Astros to a 12-2 victory against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Springer hit his 26th and 27th homers of the season, including a two-run shot off Sanchez (0-2) in the second inning. Springer had four hits and the Astros improved their major league-leading record to 59-28.

Making his first appearance since May because of a blister on his pitching hand, Sanchez allowed a career-high eight runs in 12/3 innings.

Carlos Correa of Houston extended the longest active hitting streak in the majors to a career-high 15 with his 18th homer in the first inning. Evan Gattis added his seventh homer in the seventh.

The support eased a return to action for Charlie Morton (6-3), who had been sidelined since May 24 with a right lat strain. Morton allowed one run over six innings, surrendering four hits to tie his season low.

INDIANS 11, TIGERS 2: Carlos Carrasco handled Detroit’s lineup for the second time in a week – striking out a season-high 11 – and Lonnie Chisenhall hit a two-run homer, leading Cleveland at home.

Carrasco (10-3) allowed two runs in seven innings to win his fifth straight decision. He limited the Tigers to one run in seven innings on July 1.

Chisenhall connected in Cleveland’s five-run third off Jordan Zimmerman (5-7), who remains winless since June 3.

RANGERS 10, ANGELS 0: Cole Hamels threw 72/3 shutout innings and Adrian Beltre’s three-run homer highlighted a five-run second inning as Texas won at Arlington, Texas.

Hamels (4-0) allowed three singles, two to Albert Pujols, and one walk. He struck out six, matching his season high, in his third start since returning from the DL.
