Yordan Alvarez had a grand slam and a solo shot Monday night as the visiting Houston Astros pounded out five homers to extend their winning streak to a season-high eight games with a 12-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Astros had four solo homers off starter Corbin Burnes. Alvarez's slam off Hoby Milner, his second of the season and fourth of his career, capped a five-run sixth that put Houston up 10-1.
