SEATTLE -- Matt Dominguez homered and drove in three runs, Dallas Keuchel struck out a season-high eight and the Houston Astros broke a seven-game skid with a 7-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday. It is the seventh straight loss for Seattle, which is the longest active streak in the majors. The Astros took advantage of an error by Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager in the sixth inning to score four unearned runs off Felix Hernandez (3-1) and break a 2-all tie. Hernandez took the major league lead with 43 strikeouts after recording four, but was unable to avoid his first loss of the season after shaky defence put the right-hander in a tough situation in the sixth. Keuchel (2-1) deftly navigated the Mariners for six innings, allowing six hits and a walk, but just two runs. After Jose Altuve led off the sixth with a double, Mariners catcher Mike Zunino fielded a bunt by Dexter Fowler and attempted to throw out Altuve at third base. Zuninos throw arrived in time and on the mark, but Seager dropped the ball as he moved to tag Fowler. Jason Castro followed with a sacrifice fly to score Altuve and give the Astros a 3-2 lead. Hernandez looked as if hed escape further damage by striking out George Springer, but Marc Krauss, Alex Presley and Dominguez hit a run-scoring single, triple and double, respectively. Houston began the night with a .192 batting average, the lowest for any major league team through 19 games since the 2003 Detroit Tigers (.180), according to STATS. The Tigers went on to lose 119 games. The Astros collected nine hits on Tuesday to raise their average to .196. Dominguez broke a scoreless tie with a two-run home run over the visitors bullpen in left field in the fifth. Dominguezs line-drive shot followed a single by Alex Presley, which had been just the second hit of the game for the Astros. The Mariners quickly responded with two of their own in the bottom half of the inning as Abraham Almonte hit a two-run double down the right-field line. Two replay reviews were upheld, both benefiting the Astros. The first came when Zunino hit a towering fly well over the foul pole in left in the seventh inning that was ruled a long strike. Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon asked the umpires for another review in the eighth when it appeared Altuves foot may have come off second base as the Astros were attempting a force out at the bag. The call was upheld and the runner was ruled out. NOTES: RHP Collin McHugh, who the Astros will recall from Triple-A on Tuesday to replace the injured Scott Feldman in the rotation, will likely be limited to about 85 pitches. ... Seattle RHP Taijuan Walker, on the DL with right-shoulder inflammation, is scheduled to see a doctor on Wednesday. If all goes well, Walker will resume throwing. ... Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said LHP James Paxton is on a timetable to return six to eight months from when he strained his left lat muscle on April 9.

"I only want to go through this one more time," Crosby said Friday. The 24-year-old captain hasnt played since the symptoms resurfaced following a loss to Boston on Dec. 5. Doctors allowed him to return to full practice on Tuesday and while Crosby is pleased with the way his body is responding he refuses to put on his return.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Nashville Predators have yet to lose consecutive games this season and they hope to keep that trend going by winning their final game before the All-Star break. The Montreal Canadiens, on the other hand, will try to deal Nashville its first losing streak of 2014-15 when they host the Preds in Tuesdays battle at the Bell Centre. The Predators, who own a four-point lead over Chicago atop the Central Division standings, have been one of the NHLs most surprising teams this season. Nashville has defied expectations by being the model of consistency under Peter Laviolette, who is in his first season as the teams head coach. Laviolette led Nashville to its fifth straight win, a 4-3 decision over former longtime Preds head coach Barry Trotz and his visiting Washington Capitals on Friday, before falling 5-2 the following night in Detroit. The setback against the Red Wings halted a 10-game point streak (8-0-2) and was Nashvilles first regulation defeat since Dec. 23 against Boston. Another loss tonight would give the Predators their first losing streak since an 0-3-0 slide from March 15-19 of last season. Nashville is playing without franchise goaltender Pekka Rinne, who has missed two games since suffering a lower-body injury last Tuesday against Vancouver. Rinne, who is a leading candidate for the Vezina Trophy, is expected to miss at least three weeks of action. Carter Hutton has started both games since Rinnes injury. He made 31 saves in Fridays win over the Capitals, but was pulled Saturday after yielding three goals on Detroits first four shots of the game. Marek Mazanec made 18 saves in relief of Hutton. The Red Wings beat Hutton for a goal just 57 seconds into the game when Gustav Nyquist finished off a 2-on-1. The lead would grow to 3-0 later in the first after Kyle Quincey and Tomas Tatar tallied 70 seconds apart. Tatars goal chased Hutton from the game with 7:28 left in the opening stanza. Mike Fisher and Mattias Ekholm each lit the lamp for Nashville. They got some breaks early, Fisher said. It was their night for sure. Its uncertain if Hutton or Mazanec will get the start tonight. Hutton has an overtime loss in his only career appearance against Montreal. Mazanec also has faced thee Habs once, getting pulled from a start against the Canadiens on Dec.dddddddddddd21 of last season. He did not factor into the decision despite yielding three goals on just five shots in the 4-3 home loss. Nashville, which is 12-8-3 as the guest this season, will complete a brief two-game road trip tonight. The Preds will then emerge from the All-Star break with next Tuesdays home tilt against Colorado. The Canadiens also will play their final test for the break tonight. Montreal began a three-game homestand Saturday with a 6-4 win over the New York Islanders and the victory gave Montreal an 11-3-1 record over its last 15 contests. Tomas Plekanec scored twice and added two assists to lead the way in the win over the Isles. The victory halted a two-game home slide and pushed Montreals record as the host to 14-5-2. David Desharnais chipped in a goal and an assist for the Canadiens, while P.K. Subban, Dale Weise and Alex Galchenyuk also scored in the victory. Andrei Markov picked up three assists. Montreal again played without All-Star goaltender Carey Price, who is considered day-to-day with an upper body injury he sustained last Wednesday in a win against Columbus. Dustin Tokarski, starting his second straight game in place of Price, made 27 saves. That was one of the best teams in the league, but we had a good performance from all lines tonight, said Plekanec. Im happy that our line played very well tonight. Its (just) one of those nights when you get chances like I did. Price, who was selected to the upcoming All-Star Game, was back at practice on Monday and he could get the call for Montreal tonight. The Habs franchise goaltender is 23-10-2 with a 2.19 goals against average this season, but is just 1-3-0 with a 2.49 GAA in his career against Nashville. In other injury news for Montreal, forward P.A. Parenteau will miss a second straight game with concussion symptoms. Parenteau also missed three games earlier this month with a head injury before returning to the lineup Wednesday against Columbus. He has six goals and nine assists in 40 games this season. Montreal has won two of the last three overall meetings against the Predators, but Nashville has claimed the last two encounters in Quebec.
