HOUSTON -- Jose Altuve continues to pile up hits and help the Houston Astros win. Altuve had three hits to give him 209 this season and drove in two runs, leading the Astros to a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night. The major league hits leader is just one hit shy of tying the franchise record of 210, set by Craig Biggio in 1998. "Hes a magician with the wand," interim manager Tom Lawless said. "Ive seen it a long time, but seeing it up close and personal, its amazing what he can do with the bat in his hand." Houston has won five of its last eight games and with 67 wins has already made a 16-game improvement from last years franchise-worst 51-111 finish with 12 games left. "I feel really good," Altuve said. "We are in a good moment. We are creating some momentum and we are winning games." Clevelands wild-card hopes continue to fade with a fourth straight loss. They entered the night five games back for the second AL wild card. "Were in this thing until they tell me were out of it," left fielder Michael Brantley said. "Thats how I look at it. That is how everyone in this locker room looks at it. We need to score more runs, we need to play better baseball. There is no other way to put it." The Astros trailed by one in the third inning with runners at second and third when Altuves single scored them both to put Houston up 2-1. Houston starter Collin McHugh (10-9) allowed five hits and one run -- none earned -- in 6 2-3 innings, to extend his career-best winning streak to six games. He left after taking a comebacker to his left arm in the seventh. He was able to get the ball to first for an out on the play before leaving with what the team called a bruised forearm. He said after the game that he was OK and that he didnt expect to miss his next start. "He had a really, really good breaking ball," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "He threw it a lot, he threw it for strikes. He had a little cutter that got under our barrel. I thought he pitched really well." Chad Qualls pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save. Indians starter Zach McAllister (3-7) allowed seven hits and two runs in six innings in his first major league start since July 31. Altuve, whose .342 average leads the majors, has a career-high 54 RBIs and Monday was his 63rd multhit game of the season, which extends a franchise record. He singled in the fifth and his third hit was a triple to the right field corner in the eighth inning. The Astros added an insurance run when he scored on a sacrifice fly by Dexter Fowler in the eighth. Chris Carter, who is third in the majors with 36 home runs, went 0 for 4 on Monday to snap a career-high 12-game hitting streak. TRAINERS ROOM Indians: OF Ryan Raburn missed a second straight game after leaving Saturdays game with a hyperextended left knee. Raburn travelled with the team to Houston, Francona said he might need to go back to Cleveland to be evaluated. "Hes still pretty tender, pretty sore," Francona said. "The fact that he came in and was still pretty tender we need to get him looked at." He said hed have more information on Tuesday. Astros: The team still hasnt decided if OF George Springer (left quadriceps strain) will play again this season. The rookie has been out since July 20. "If hes totally healthy then we have no problem (playing him), Lawless said. "To be over-cautious is probably better than to be under-cautious at this time." UP NEXT Houstons Nick Tropeano will make his second major league start against right-hander Corey Kluber in the second game of the four-game series. Tropeano allowed two runs in five innings to get the win in his debut on Wednesday. Klubers 15 wins this season are the most for the Indians since Cliff Lee went 22-3 in 2008. Kyle Garlick Jersey .

Djokovic didnt face a break point on his serve after the first set in the baseline slugfest that ended after midnight PDT. He advanced to the quarter-finals against Julien Benneteau, a 6-3, 7-6 (4) winner over Feliciano Lopez. "It was very tough. Marin was a far better player in the first 45 minutes. He was striking the ball incredibly well," said Djokovic, who improved to 8-0 against Cilic. "I tried to stay calm and composed and believe that I could come back." Kevin Anderson upset Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-1, and sixth-ranked Andy Murray joined Wawrinka on the sidelines, losing to big-serving Milos Raonic, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. Anderson ended Wawrinkas 13-match winning streak that included his first Grand Slam title in January. Wawrinka didnt face a break point in his first two matches, but he got broken in his first service game against the 6-foot-8 Anderson, who had 11 aces and connected on 64 per cent of his first serves. "I was complaining a lot about my serve, about the way I was playing, and with that, I dont deserve to win matches," Wawrinka said. "I should have been more positive with myself, just trying to find solution because it was still a close match." After losing the first set tiebreaker, Wawrinka left the court for nearly eight minutes to have his back worked on. He returned and broke Anderson twice in taking the second set to even the match. "Its just tightness," he said, insisting he wasnt injured. "I was a little bit nervous and tight and tired." Anderson earned all four breaks in the third in completing his 150th career match win on the ATP Tour. "Game plan is just to get as many first serves back as possible just to give myself the best look in his serve games throughout the match," he said. Anderson advanced to the quarter-finals against four-time tournament champion Roger FFederer, who beat 11th-seeded Tommy Haas 6-4, 6-4.dddddddddddd Against Murray, Raonic earned his first win over a top-10 player since September. He fired 15 aces and held triple match point when he ripped a crosscourt forehand to close out the win after breaking Murray three times in the final set. "The third set was just a bad, bad set of tennis," said Murray, who broke Raonic to lead 2-1 before losing five of the final six games. Murray, ranked sixth in the world, struggled in all three of his matches at Indian Wells. He rallied from a set down to beat Lukas Rosol and Jiri Vesely, but couldnt overcome Raonics power. "He obviously wins a lot of free points with his serve," Murray said. "So over the course of the set, if you give up enough unforced errors on basic shots, then with the amount of free points he gets on his serve, thats going to add up to a negative result." Raonic blew his first match point when he returned Murrays serve long. Murray held to trail 5-3, but Raonic held at love to close out the match. He hit 42 winners to 22 for Murray. Playing his first tournament since injuring his left ankle at the Australian Open in January, Raonic hadnt beaten someone in the top 10 since defeating then-No. 6 Tomas Berdych in the Bangkok final last fall. "I focused a lot more this event on my attitude and approach during the matches rather than what Im necessarily playing and just sort of being very hard on myself on that aspect," Raonic said. Raonic, a 23-year-old Canadian ranked 11th in the world, advanced to the quarter-finals against Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine, who beat Fabio Fognini of Italy, 6-2, 6-4. Ernests Gulbis beat Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (7), 4-6, 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals. Hell play John Isner, the lone remaining American man who beat Fernando Verdasco, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3. On the womens side, sixth-seeded Simona Halep defeated Australian qualifier Casey Dellacqua 6-2, 6-2 to earn a berth in the semifinals. Halep will play second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, who beat No. 7 seed Jelena Jankovic, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4. ' ' '
