Shane Bieber could be down to a handful of starts with the Guardians.

If so, he’s going to make the most of them.

Bieber had his most dominant outing this season, striking out nine while not allowing a run over seven innings and Andrés Giménez homered in a 5-0 win over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Bieber (5-3) gave up just three hits, walked two and was in command from the outset. The right-hander came in with only eight strikeouts combined in his previous three starts before matching his season-high set against Detroit on May 9.

Andres Giménez staked Bieber to a 2-0 lead with his second-inning homer off Brandon Bielak (3-3) and Josh Bell added a solo shot in the fourth as the surging Guardians took a series from Houston for the first time since 2017. Cleveland has won six of eight and 10 of 16,
