Three-run blast by Pujols helps Angels over Astros, 5-2

Three-run blast by Pujols helps Angels over Astros, 5-2

Aoki had a 404 ft Homerun in the fifth and McCann hit a bases loaded two-run double in the seventh that opened the door for the rest of the offense and bullpen to finish this game off.

First pitch will be at 7:10 from Minute Maid Park.

The lineup has been on fire recently as the Astros return to Houston to face the Los Angeles Angels. With how badly the Angels offense is sputtering, I have to side with Houston, and I'll be taking the Astros on the run line to get some extra value because I don't see this one being close.

Beltran's home run Thursday came with one out and the first inning off Matt Shoemaker (0-1), and Marisnick's second homer this season made it 2-0 in the fifth. Keuchel, in four starts, has allowed three runs across 28 innings. They had earlier snapped their 21-inning scoreless streak with two outs in the second, when Andrelton Simmons homered to right field for the first time in his career.

Houston Astros' Josh Reddick (22) is congratulated by Yuli Gurriel after hitting a two-run home run against the Los Angeles Angels in the seventh inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, April 19, 2017, in Houston.

Luke Gregerson had a clean eighth inning with one strikeout.

The lone run surrendered by Keuchel came off an RBI single from Yunel Escobar into left field in the third inning, scoring Danny Espinosa.

Astros: Mike Fiers looks for his first win this season when he starts on Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Tampa. Lance McCullers Jr. gets the start for Houston in game 4, and is 1-0 with a 4.67 ERA and 23 strikeouts this season.

Reddick on the night would finish a single shy of the cycle, and while he didn't get that honor, he did help the Astros pick up their 10th win of the season, something they weren't able to do a year ago till May 4th. The farthest right he'd ever hit one was to dead center. Reddick would score from second, but Altuve would be thrown out trying to stretch a double into a triple by Mike Trought.

This was the first game Keuchel has allowed more than two hits. "Last two games haven't worked our way, but we put ourselves in position to have a chance". "When I hand the ball to Dallas every five days, at his best, he's keeping the ball on the ground and missing bats".

Marte, speaking in Spanish to an interpreter, said he felt "good" and "comfortable" in left, despite not playing there as much this year.

Beltran's previous homer for Houston came on October 17, 2004, in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series against St. Louis, capping a postseason in which he hit eight homers with 14 RBIs in 12 games. Hinch called Correa day to day. "I was pounding the zone pretty good". "I'll be better for sure". Ramirez allowed four hits and five runs in his first career start, a loss to Kansas City on April 14. "I just put my best swing of the night on it". "The effort was there". Ramirez took matters into his own hands mostly after that, striking out a career-high nine in his 5 1/3 innings.

McCullers struck out 10 in four starts last season, three times in July, including once against the Angels.

"He pitched a great game", Scioscia said. "I think he had a nice blend of all his breaking stuff and used his fastball effectively".
