Angels shake off rough start, beat Astros to extend win streak to 4

first_imgMeanwhile, the Angels’ lineup went to work. After Simmons’ fifth home run of the season in the third inning, the Angels got a pair of runs in the fourth inning against left-hander Framber Valdez (3-6). Upton and Pujols hit back-to-back doubles. Pujols came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Smith, tying the score at 3-3.Valdez allowed four runs in the fifth inning as the Angels pulled away for good. The key hit: a bases-loaded single by Pujols that drove in a pair of runs.Pujols’ double was the 643rd of his career, matching Honus Wagner for eighth place on the all-time list. No player has driven in more runs against the Astros in his career than Pujols’ 160.A win Tuesday would give the Angels five in a row for the first time since April. They have momentum, and perhaps a returning superstar, to lean on.“I would never call a July series critical,” Ausmus said, “but we’re chasing them so it’s probably more important for us than it is for them.” PreviousANAHEIM, CA – JULY 15: Albert Pujols #5, Justin Upton #8, David Fletcher #6 and Michael Hermosillo celebrate a 9-6 win over the Houston Astros at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on July 15, 2019 in Anaheim, California.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandANAHEIM — The count was full, the bases were loaded and Griffin Canning needed to throw a strike to Josh Reddick. The rookie right-hander reared back and fired a fastball over the plate. The Angels’ catcher, Kevan Smith, caught the ball somewhere above the height of Reddick’s chin and below the ridge of his nose. Reddick walked to first base with the easiest RBI a man can collect.Unfortunately for Canning, the worst start of his brief major league career only got worse.Fortunately for the Angels, it didn’t matter.Trailing 3-0 in the second inning, the Angels scored seven unanswered runs en route to a 9-6 victory over the Houston Astros before an announced crowd of 35,431 at Angel Stadium. Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield “It was just one of those games where early on you just want to help pick up your teammate,” said Angels pitcher Taylor Cole, who relieved Canning with one out in the second inning. “I’ve been in those situations as a starter.”Without the services of Mike Trout, who is nursing a strained right calf muscle, the Angels won their fourth consecutive game since the All-Star break. At 49-46, they’re three games above .500 for the first time all season, and 10 games behind the first-place Astros (59-36) in the American League West.Albert Pujols went 3 for 4 with three RBIs. David Fletcher and Justin Upton each had two hits, and Smith drove in three runs. Andrelton Simmons, batting second in place of the injured Trout, hit a solo home run to kickstart the Angels’ come-from-behind rally.Trout will avoid the injured list and could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday. He’s hit eight home runs in nine July games.“He did most of the damage as of late, but everybody else has been putting up good at-bats,” Simmons said. “Even though we missed him a bit today, we kept putting together good at-bats.”center_img Canning functioned as an “opener” on a day the Angels weren’t planning to use one. He needed two pitches to retire the first two hitters, George Springer and Jose Altuve. He fell behind the next hitter, Alex Bregman, 2-and-1, then threw a pair of borderline pitches that umpire Jim Reynolds called balls. Bregman took his base.On a 1-and-1 count to Yordan Alvarez, Canning threw three pitches off the outside corner to the left-handed slugger – another walk. The next batter, Yuli Gurriel, also drew a five-pitch walk, loading the bases for Reddick. Reddick saw six pitches and swung at one. Two were curveballs in the dirt. Ball four missed a foot high. Canning then struck out Robinson Chirinos to end the first inning.Canning also struck out Tony Kemp to begin the second inning before he completely unraveled.Myles Straw walked. Springer dumped a single into right field. Straw went to third base, then scored on a wild pitch. Altuve walked. Both runners moved up on another wild pitch, then Bregman singled home Springer. With the score 3-0, Manager Brad Ausmus mercifully removed Canning, ending the shortest start of his career after 1⅓ innings.“Obviously I’m not just gonna look past it,” Canning said. “I don’t think I need to panic. I’ll watch the videos. I don’t think there was anything mechanical at all. I’m not gonna feel sorry for myself, just gonna keep working.”Canning’s final line was historically bad. No Angels pitcher had ever walked six batters and thrown four wild pitches in a game. No major league pitcher since at least 1908 threw four wild pitches, walked six, and recorded four outs or fewer.Control has always been an asset for Canning, a second-round draft pick out of UCLA and a former standout at Santa Margarita High. He said he’d endured such an extreme bout of wildness “maybe once before.”“Griffin, he’s going to be a horse for us for a long time,” Cole said. “Everybody is going to go through ups and downs in baseball. You have to learn from those one way or another. He’s a very mature person for his age and being up in the big leagues. I’m excited to see him play in the big leagues for a long time.”Cole (1-1) warmed up quickly and induced a double play groundout to end the second inning and hold the deficit at 3-0. He tossed 3⅓ scoreless innings of relief. Cam Bedrosian worked around a hit and a walk in a scoreless seventh inning. Hansel Robles pitched a scoreless ninth to record his 14th save.The only runs the Angels’ bullpen allowed came on home runs by Springer – one against Justin Anderson in the sixth inning and another against Ty Buttrey in the eighth.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
