The Houston Astros Fall 9-1 to the LA Angels
The Houston Astros will look to get back over .500 the next time they take the field, as they fell to 3-4 on the year with Monday’s loss to the Los Angeles Angels by a score of 9-1. LA jumped out to a lead early as they lead 3-0 after the first and would never look back. Houston managed just four hits in the game as their offense really struggled to find any sort of rhythm on Monday. The Astros would have suffered their first shutout of the season had catcher Carlos Corporan not belted a solo homer with two outs in the eighth off Wilson, who pitched eight dominating innings to improve to 3-1 with a 1.99 ERA in 11 career games in Houston. The team will now turn their attention to the Toronto Blue Jays, as they start a series with them on Wednesday.
