Keuchel, Reddick lead Astros to 5-1 win over Angels

Keuchel, Reddick lead Astros to 5-1 win over Angels

However, as their scoring drought stretched to 21 innings, they were certainly wondering when they'd get back on track.

Houston's Carlos Correa was 0 for 2 with a walk in his return to the lineup after sitting out three games with a sore right hand after being plunked on Saturday in Oakland.

"I thought we battled him", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Keuchel.

"I don't think it's pressing, but you're always trying to keep your finger on the pulse of what the frustration level is", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "But the sooner the better".

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.

Hours after the Big 12 Conference school announced Tuesday that its opener was being moved back a day to accommodate television, Texas Tech said the game would remain on September 2 as originally scheduled.

"I didn't feel comfortable swinging the bat today; it bothered me a lot", the 22-year-old Correa said before Monday's game at Minute Maid Park. "I'm glad we came out with a win".

Pujols has 54 career home runs against the Astros, the most by any player against Houston. He's gone 10 for 34 after getting just one hit in his first 20 at-bats this season.

The Houston Astros have a rather goofy-looking mascot, but the large green creature put one over on baseball's premier hitter tonight.

George Springer hit his AL-leading seventh home run for the Astros, whose five-game winning streak was snapped. Musgrove faced the Angels once during his rookie campaign, allowing one run and seven hits with four strikeouts in seven innings in a 4-1 victory in his final start of the season on September 25. Cam Bedrosian got the last six outs for his third save.

Keuchel (3-0) gave up one run on eight hits, striking out seven and walking one in seven innings.

"I was pounding the strike zone", Ramirez said. Correa did take batting practice and fielded ground balls before Wednesday's game. Hopefully, it will heal soon and I'll be ready to go back out there.

In the first inning, Jose Altuve lined an 0-1 pitch to right field.

Yuli Gurriel sent the first pitch of Houston's third to the seats in left field, and the Astros took a 2-1 lead when Springer connected on his home run with one out in the inning. "Right now, we just mixing and matching a little bit until some of our guys get comfortable". "There's still a lot of games to play so I still want to be able to be able to play most of the game".

Helping out at the plate, the Angels have some pretty interesting players. OF Ryan LaMarre was designated for assignment.

Dallas Keuchel continued his string of strong outings to start the season Wednesday night. Right-hander Ricky Nolasco (0-2, 5.40 ERA) will get the start for the Angels on Tuesday night. Shoemaker had a hard time getting support in four starts versus Houston last season, posting a 1-2 record despite posting a 2.22 ERA.
