Heston "superb" as McGehee sits

That's right -- a complete game 2-hitter for Chris Heston as Matt Duffy drove in 5 runs as the starting third baseman.

McGehee got benched again. Send to Sacramento, please. Maybe he can find his stroke in the PCL.

Duffy now has 15 RBIs. He's tied with Maxwell for second-highest on the team. Crawford has 17.

 Here's the mlb.com recap --

HOUSTON -- Matt Duffy drove in a career-high five runs with a three-run double in the second inning and a two-run single in the fifth to lead the Giants to an 8-1 rout of the Astros in an Interleague matchup Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park.
Astros starter Collin McHugh (4-1) saw his 11-game winning streak come to an end when he lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (three earned) and seven hits. The Giants scored five times in the fifth to take a seven-run lead, including a two-out infield single by Justin Maxwell on a play that may have ended the inning scoreless had shortstop Marwin Gonzalez not made an errant throw to second.
Giants starter Chris Heston (3-3), facing the Astros for the first time in his career, handcuffed the struggling Houston offense in his first career complete game, allowing two hits and one run on a second-inning homer by catcher Jason Castro. Heston notched a career-best 10 strikeouts and retired the final 22 batters he faced.
