Angels 2 Astros 5
Framber Valdez was initially lined up to start this game before he was bumped back to a Friday start (against Shohei Ohtani). Unfortunately, Cy Rookie Ronel Blanco held the Angels to only 2 runs over 5.1 innings. The Houston bullpen did the rest.
Taylor Ward, who has been hot as of late, opened up scoring with this RBI single:
Probably THE biggest moment in this game that may have changed the entire result, was this terrible called strike 3 on Taylor Ward with the bases loaded. Phil Nevin was heated – as he should have been – and was subsequently tossed. We don’t really know what would have happened here, but we do know that was at least ONE run that should have scored with a WalkRBI
