Astros 10, Angels 5
Packy Naughton continued to audition for a spot in the Angels 2022 staff, and today, he looked like a pitcher destined to start next season in the minors. Obviously, the Astros boast a vaunted offense, ranking 2nd in the Majors in team OPS, but Packy’s three walks and just one strikeout in four innings did little to showcase himself.
Houston once again jumped out to an early lead with two second-inning jacks from Kyle Tucker and Aledmys Díaz.
After a quick Jack Mayfield homer, the Astros stormed back with two more dingers to take a commanding 10-1 lead before the sixth inning had ended.
Shohei Ohtani hit #45 though! That was cool!
The Angels have officially been eliminated from the postseason race.
