The pitching staff supported Houston's offence Monday night.
Mike Trout, 25, a center fielder with the Los Angeles Angels and a 2009 Millville High School graduate, was the 2014 and 2016 American League Most Valuable Player. The Astros are also 4-1 in Musgrove's last five starts and have won four of his last five outings against divisional rivals as well. Musgrove threw a fat slider right into Pujols' wheelhouse, who promptly distributed the ball over the Crawford Boxes. "I never like to be as sporadic, especially with my sinker because it was all over the place". Astros pitchers retired the last 14 batters.
Chris Devenski came in for two flawless innings in which he struck out the side in the sixth and added one more in the seventh for good measures. Over his six innings, Nolasco did not allow a run besides the two homers. "So they give me another day". "That's all. Being able to give us a chance and with our offence they're capable of anything". Heading into this series, Jose Altuve led the way on 16 hits, seven runs and four RBI. Bregman singled to center field allowing Gattis to score from second. That's my job. I just put my best swing on it. "If you're going to be a good team, you have to win the close ones, and Charlie did a great job tonight". After a Kole Calhoun strikeout, Mike Trout doubled in Maldonado to tie the game at two apiece and bring up the ghost of NL past, Albert Pujols. The Angels, who have lost six straight, were shut out in consecutive games for the first time since July 28-29, 2012, against Tampa Bay. "I think the process is right it's just one of those times right now where we're not getting enough guys on base early in innings and getting that big hit".

The Houston Astros were stymied tonight by the Los Angeles Angels, ending their win streak at five games entering tonight's contest. Hinch said he will be day to day and that it was a simple decision to keep him out. "We got back last night after the long flight and he felt OK".
Stats: Trout is hitting.327 (17 for 52) with three home runs, 11 RBIs, seven runs scored and three stolen bases in 15 games. The trio of Michael Feliz, Jandel Gustave and Brad Peacock tossed four scoreless innings, holding the Angels to one hit and two walks while striking out six.
