Houston's Blanco hasn't allowed hit through six innings against Blue Jays

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston's Ronel Blanco hasn't allowed a hit through six innings Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Blanco, who is making his first start this season, has thrown 70 pitches and walked one, on a leadoff walk by George Springer.

Blanco, who has struck out six, induced three groundouts in the second inning and struck out the side in the fourth.

The 30-year-old right-hander is in his third major league season after going 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 17 games with seven starts last season.

The Astros, who are looking for their first win, lead 5-0 after early home runs by Kyle Tucker, Yainer Diaz and Jeremy Pena.
