Duke Ihenacho Jersey . -- Watching from the bullpen as journeyman Collin McHugh carved up the Kansas City lineup, Astros reliever Tony Sipp only wished he had a bucket of popcorn and a soda. "Its like watching a good movie," Sipp said, "and you dont want to mess up the ending." After McHugh held the light-hitting Royals at bay over seven innings, Sipp and Chad Qualls provided an appropriate ending. They worked the final two innings without allowing a hit in a 3-0 victory Tuesday night that gave Houston its first four-game winning streak since September. The Astros own the worst record in the AL, but have won four in a row on the road for the first time since taking six straight away from Minute Maid Park last May 29-June 3. "I mean, I think were playing hard," said McHugh, who is already on his third big league team in three seasons. "Were coming to play every day, and were putting together a few games here." Houston rookie George Springers homer streak ended at four games. He hit two flyballs to the warning track and finished 1 for 4. Matt Dominguez hit an RBI single in the fourth, and the Astros tacked on two more runs against Tim Collins in the eighth. "Thats what you call an extremely well-played baseball game," Houston manager Bo Porter said. McHugh (3-3) scattered five hits while striking out nine without issuing a walk to earn his first win in five starts. He stranded a runner at third base in the second inning and runners at second and third in the fifth, but otherwise cruised through the Kansas City lineup. The only run Jeremy Guthrie (2-4) allowed came when Dominguez followed up a pair of one-out walks to Dexter Fowler and Jason Castro with a single in the fourth inning. Guthrie left after allowing seven hits and three walks in six innings. The right-hander dodged plenty of trouble, inducing double-play grounders in the third and fifth, but still got stuck with his fourth straight loss. His last win came April 9 against Tampa Bay. During a nine-start winless streak, Guthrie has allowed just one run on three occasions. The Royals lost for the sixth time in their last eight games, and their pop-gun offence has had a lot to do with the futility. Kansas City has been held to three or fewer runs in four of its last five games, including the 9-2 pounding that Houston dished out on Monday night. Royals manager Ned Yosts frustration boiled over in the sixth inning. He went out to check on Guthrie with the bases loaded and two outs, and was returning to the dugout after their discussion when plate umpire Kerwin Danley met him near the mound. After saying something to Danley, Yost was immediately ejected. "I got frustrated on some calls I thought Jeremy should have got. Its mostly my fault," said Yost, who was tossed for the second time this season. Meanwhile, McHugh continued to slice up the Royals batting order. He struck out designated hitter Billy Butler twice, silenced Eric Hosmers bat and retired the last eight hitters he faced. It was the fourth time the Royals have been shut out this season. "You dont lose confidence, but youre definitely frustrated," Hosmer said. "We definitely should be putting up a better fight. As an offence as a whole, we should be putting up a better performance than that. Were not getting the job done." NOTES: Royals RHP Yordano Ventura will miss his next start due to a valgus extension overload, a condition that causes pain in the elbow. He left Monday nights game in the third inning. An MRI on Tuesday came back negative. ... The Astros left 11 runners on base. ... Houston RHP Jarred Cosart is slated to start Wednesdays series finale. LHP Danny Duffy is on the mound for Kansas City. Harry Carson Jersey . -- With his team down 16 points in the second quarter and headed for another blowout loss at home, Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson yelled out to his players to keep shooting and keep fighting on defence. Devon Kennard Jersey .Kessy tried to show what he can do playing left wing for the Oilers in 5-0 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday in pre-season action.The NFL Draft takes place in Chicago on Thursday night, when the best players in collegiate football will find out which NFL team they will end up representing. That led us to thinking what might happen if another sports players were also subject to a draft before they entered the league.So, with a little bit (okay, a lot!) of artistic licence, lets take a look at which Premier League players would be selected if the National Football League drafted association footballers. Richard Graves Mock Draft SSN HQs man in Chicago delivers his verdict 1. Los Angeles Rams select Riyad Mahrez (FW - Leicester Foxes) - The Rams need an exciting playmaker, and who better than the PFA/Heisman Player of the Year with his 17 goals and 11 assists. Hell fit in well in Hollywood as well.2. Philadelphia Eagles select Mesut Ozil (MF - Arsenal Gunners) - Another team needing an offensive spark, and he will create chances galore for the Eagles offense - at a record level, perhaps?3. San Diego Chargers select Harry Kane (FW - Tottenham Hotspurs) - They need a points scorer and there is no one better available in this draft. Wes Morgan is just the bolster to bolster a defense 4. Dallas Cowboys select Wes Morgan (DF - Leicester Foxes) - Nobodys stock has risen more in the last 12 months than Big Wesley. Hes ideal for the Cowboys who need a stopper in the heart of their defense.5. Jacksonville Jaguars select Ngolo Kante (MF - Leicester Foxes) - The Foxes are dominating the draft and Kante gives the Jaguars a huge boost on both sides of the ball. He will rack up the tackles on defense but can also play on offence as well.6. Baltimore Ravens select Sergio Aguero (FW - Manchester Citizens) - He comes with a few injury questions, but the talent is unquestioned. Should be able to finish off plenty of scoring plays in his rookie season. Sky Sports Digital Mock Draft We deliver our verdict from 1-32 7. San Francisco 49ers select Toby Alderweireld (DF - Tottenham Hotspurs) - Another team with plenty of holes to fill but the one-season Spurs man has done enough to prove he is one of thhe most talented defenders available. Dwayne Harris Jersey. 8. Cleveland Browns select Jamie Vardy (FW - Leicester Foxes) - They traded down in the hope of still getting an offensive spark, and it worked to perfection. He went under the radar early in his career but no doubting him anymore.9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Hector Bellerin (DF - Arsenal Gunners) - They need defensive help, especially down the flanks, and the Spanish graduate has impressed many with his play at both ends of the field. Who better to protect a leaky defense 10. New York Giants select David De Gea (GK - Manchester Red Devils) - Protection, protection, protection - thats what the Giants need, and its exactly what they get.11. Chicago Bears select Dele Alli (MF - Tottenham Hotspurs) - Surprising to see him drop to the Bears, given his undoubted talent. Maybe recent temperamental issues caused teams to take him off their board? Previous No1 pick QBs Looking back at the good and bad of QB No1 picks 12. New Orleans Saints select Robert Huth (DF - Leicester Foxes) - Another team in need of a big guy down the middle. Huth might be a bit of a reach here, but the talent pool in his position is pretty thin at the moment.13. Miami Dolphins select Dimitri Payet (MF - West Hammers) - Dream scenario for the Dolphins, who needed an offensive spark and a special teams whizz. They get it, all rolled into one French package. Dimitri Payet perfect for special plays 14. Oakland Raiders select Eden Hazard (FW - Chelsea Blues) - Its like Al Davis is alive still. So much talent to pick from and the Raiders pick a player who has almost disappeared this season. Will he be another Raiders first-round disappointment?15. Tennessee Titans select Alexis Sanchez (MF - Arsenal Gunners) - Marcus Mariota needs someone to connect with and the little Chilean should be a perfect complement.
