HOUSTON, PROBLEM SOLVED

After taking a step back last season, Dallas Keuchel has regained the form that earned him an AL Cy Young Award in 2015, and he can become the majors' first seven-game winner when the Astros play at Miami. At a time when pitchers are throwing harder than ever before, Keuchel (6-0, 1.69 ERA) is dominating with a fastball averaging 89 mph. The bush-bearded lefty has the second highest groundball rate among qualified starters (64.4 percent) and has pitched at least seven innings in all but one of his eight starts.
