Dusty Baker Moves Into 10th in Wins for a Manager as Astros Notch 11th Victory in a Row
USATSI The Houston Astros extended their winning streak to 11 games on Friday night with a 6-1 victory against the Washington Nationals (box score). Houston is now tied with the New York Yankees for the longest winning streak in Major League Baseball this season. No other team has had a winning streak reach past seven yet. The win also served as the 2,009th of Dusty Baker's managerial career, surpassing Leo Durocher for 10th all-time: The Astros jumped on the Nationals early, plating five runs in the top of the first inning. Jose Altuve opened the scoring with a solo home run, and from there Houston was off to the races.
