Alex Bregman dropped the bat as he normally does, complete with the cocksure flair that so endears him to those who gather inside this ballpark. He began the slow jog up the first-base line, a game-sealing two-run home run landing five rows inside the Crawford Boxes in left field.

If there was any other petitioning or any final highlights required for Bregman’s rapidly rising All-Star resume, this was it. His 17th home run widened a one-run lead to three, lessened the blow of the four-run White Sox half-inning that preceded it and continued his five-week ascent up major league leaderboards.

McCullers won his fourth straight decision to join Charlie Morton as the first Houston pitchers to reach 10 wins this season.

BOX SCORE: ASTROS 12, WHITE SOX 6

In his last 21 games, Bregman has nine home runs and nine doubles. He finished 3-for-5 on Saturday, pushing his OPS past .900 for the first time all season. No other Astro is above .900. Only one American League third baseman, Jose Ramirez, surpasses him.

During Saturday's 12-6 win, Bregman punished James Shields, a reinvented 35-year-old veteran, for falling behind with a man in scoring position. White Sox manager Rick Renteria, too, for trying to squeeze another inning from his languished starter in a one-run game.

Ahead in the count 2-0, Bregman received a four-seam fastball. It settled at his letters and, soon, into a fellow’s hand in the left field seats. The baseball exited Bregman’s bat at only 95 mph but possessed a 29-degree launch angle and traveled 385 feet. In this ballpark, to left field, its fate is sealed.

So, too, was the game. The Astros reached 60 wins before the All-Star break for a second consecutive year, clubbing 17 hits and scoring six times in the final three innings. Every Astros starter — including Saturday call-up Kyle Tucker — had a hit. Six had multi-hit games.

Houston struck four extra-base hits against Shields in the first three innings. Jose Altuve curled a two-out double inside the left field line in the first. An inning later, Max Stassi split the right center field gap with another, scoring Evan Gattis for the game’s first run.

Yuli Gurriel drove in three of his four runs in the second, depositing Shields’ 68 mph curveball — some call it an eephus pitch — into the Crawford Boxes for a three-run home run. He drove Bregman home in the eighth, too, against a drawn-in infield to begin a three-run frame.

The bullpen twirled 3 ⅔ innings of one-run baseball in relief of Charlie Morton.

Morton’s night began with such promise. It ended unceremoniously. One day after Lance McCullers Jr. carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, Morton maintained the torrid pace. Six of the first nine White Sox hitters struck out against the 34-year-old righthander.

Morton spun his looping curveball to early success. Daniel Palka struck out twice against it in the first four innings. So, too, did Jose Abreu. Only three White Sox reached scoring position against him through the first five innings — and one was due to an infield error.

Morton entered the sixth inning with a four-run lead. He did not finish it. Facing the top of Chicago’s lineup for a third time, Morton allowed a sharp single to Yoan Moncada and walked Yolmer Sanchez. Both were forced out on consecutive fielder’s choices. Morton required one out to escape the mess.

He walked Palka on five pitches. Matt Davidson struck an RBI single on the second pitch Morton tossed him. Then, with a full-count against Omar Narvaez, Morton left a full-count fastball chest-high.
