For nearly two years, Dallas Keuchel looked unhittable at Minute Maid Park.

That is, until the Minnesota Twins came to town.

The 2015 AL Cy Young winner's franchise record of 17 straight home wins was snapped by the Twins in Monday's 6-2 loss after the left-hander surrendered five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings. The last time Keuchel lost in Houston was Aug. 10, 2014.

"Tonight we staked a 1-0 lead and I gotta be able to produce, and I didn't. That's all on me," Keuchel told reporters after the game.

Keuchel hasn't been his award-winning self in 2016, pitching to a 2-4 record with a hefty 5.11 ERA in six starts. It's a far cry from his start in 2015, when Keuchel breezed through his first six games, going 3-0 to the tune of an 0.80 ERA.

The Astros now sit tied with the Twins for the worst record in the American League at 8-18.
