Three-run blast by Pujols helps Angels beat Astros

Houston Astros' George Springer (4) celebrates with Alex Bregman (2) after defeating the Los Angeles Angels 3-0. At the site of many of his biggest home runs, Pujols launched one more against the Astros, snapping the Angels' six-game losing streak with one vicious swing.

Houston Astros' George Springer watches his solo home run off Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco in the third inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Houston.

Correa (hand) is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels. "With the infield in, the last thing you want to do is hit a ground ball somewhere and not be able to do your job". That's what I did.

"You're always pleased any time you get an opportunity to help the team out to win", Pujols said. "I'm glad we came out with a win".

Bregman, filling in for injured shortstop Carlos Correa, went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in the second inning that plated Evan Gattis and provided right-hander Charlie Morton (1-1) all the run support needed for his first win with the Astros. 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.

"I wasn't very good with 7-8-9 tonight", Musgrove said. "I try not to look at it as failure, I try to look at it as feedback and bounce back next time". For Gurriel, it marked his first home run of the season.

Simmons had hit 36 previous home runs in the major leagues. "I tip my hat to him". Cam Bedrosian got the last six outs for his third save.

The Angels beat the Houston Astros, 5-2, on Tuesday night, combining both sides of the game in the nice tidy way Mike Scioscia hopes for when refers to getting a "game on our terms". "From a pitch count standpoint, he never had an easy inning, and that seems to be the case in a few starts this year".

Before the game, the Angels acquired C Juan Graterol from Toronto for a player to be named or cash. Bridwell posted a 13.50 ERA over two appearances with the Orioles last season. Street was on the 10-day DL with a lat strain but could not maintain his rehab progression due to a mild shoulder impingement, according to published reports.

ASTROS KEY TRENDS: The Astros have won five straight games and are 6-0 in their last six games when facing a right-handed starter. The club is not considering a disabled list stint for Correa.

HOUSTON - The Angels' six-game losing streak, which began with the pitching struggling and morphed into an offensive outage, is over. LHP Billy Wagner set that mark in 1999.
