  • Morton, 3 Astros relievers combine to 5-hit Angels, 3-0

Andrew Triggs allowed three hits over six innings to outpitch Yu Darvish, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 4-2 on Tuesday night.

The game was tied at 2-all with one out in the fifth when Pujols hit his second homer of the season.

The Angels are 4-1 in their last five games versus a left-handed starter, and 7-2 in their last nine game threes of a series. It was Beltran's first home run of the season and first in an Astros uniform since 2004.

"We have a lot of confidence in our offense", manager Mike Scioscia said.

Starter JC Ramirez settled in for the Angels (7-9) after the first, and he hung with the 2015 American League Cy Young victor for a few innings.

Chris Devenski allowed home run to Mike Trout starting the ninth inning and back-to-back singles with one out before fanning Cameron Maybin and Danny Espinosa for his first save.

"His knowledge first of all, but what he sees in the box, what he relays to me, what we talk about between innings", Keuchel said of what he's liked about throwing to McCann. Fiers is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts this season and allowed six hits and five runs in four innings in his last start. The Angels, who finished with eight hits, lost for the first time this season when getting eight or more hits.

The EU's executive commission said Thursday that it was "saddened" by the deaths of two young people during Wednesday's protests. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday urged all sides in Venezuela to make "concrete gestures" to ease the tension.

"I felt like I threw the ball well tonight", he said.

Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa was held out of Monday's lineup against the Los Angeles Angels while nursing a right hand injury.

The homer by Simmons gave Los Angeles a 1-0 lead in the second inning. "He's pitched us tough in this park and we just haven't figured him out yet". "There's still a lot of games to play so I still want to be able to be able to play most of the game". "He's been really good". Correa did take batting practice and fielded ground balls before Wednesday's game.

"Any time there's a close game, there's a little more pressure, but those are the types of games we like to play in", Bregman said.

Correa has opened the 2017 slashing.234/.315/.298 with a.271 wOBA through 54 plate appearances, though his hefty 41.0 percent hard-hit rate is a good indicator that his production will start to pick up moving forward.

The Angels optioned C Carlos Perez to Triple-A Salt Lake before the game and called up C Juan Graterol.
