Shields strikes out 12, Royals sweep Astros 5-1

HOUSTON (AP) Bo Porter knows there will be some growing pains in managing the youngest team in the majors.

Still, a mistake by Matt Dominguez in Houston's 5-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night really got to him.

The Astros trailed 5-0 when Chris Carter drew a leadoff walk in the fifth. Carter advanced to third on a single by Dominguez, but Dominguez was out trying to stretch it into a double.
