Angels 3, Astros 2
It wasn’t pretty, but the job got done.
Thursday night, pitching walked eleven hitters overall, while there were only ten hits total, leading to some very ugly baseball.
Jack Mayfield delivered the winning blow:
Raisel Iglesias gave up a solo home run to Jason Castro in the ninth, but he got the final three outs. The Angels are still undefeated when leading after eight innings. Clearly, the formula to winning games is to have a late lead. Who knew!
