Beltran's first Houston homer helps Astros top Angels 2-1

Houston Astros' Jose Altuve is tagged out by Los Angeles Angels third baseman Yunel Escobar while trying to stretch a double into a triple during the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday

Astros: SS Carlos Correa (right hand bruise) was not in the starting lineup after being hit by a pitch Saturday in Oakland.

"It was huge", Reddick said.

"I gave us a chance. He's doing something special right now". Right-hander Ricky Nolasco (0-2, 5.40 ERA) will get the start for the Angels on Tuesday night. They wasted a strong start from right-hander Jesse Chavez (1-2), who allowed two runs, seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in seven innings.

Pujols has 54 career home runs against the Astros, the most by any player against Houston.

Reddick tripled in the first inning, doubled in the sixth and struck out swinging in his only other at-bat, finishing 3-for-4. "I don't think anyone was doubting that we wouldn't get back on track". "He's been really good. He provided a nice little spark when we needed it". Heading into this series, Yunel Escobar held 16 hits, 10 runs and four RBI, while Mike Trout was right there as well on 16 hits, six runs and 10 RBI. Keuchel, in four starts, has allowed three runs across 28 innings.

"I've just been feeling good and trying to ride the momentum and quality of pitches into the next start", Keuchel said. "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". "When I hand the ball to Dallas every five days, at his best, he's keeping the ball on the ground and missing bats".

From the beginning, Keuchel had run support.

Yulieski Gurriel also had an RBI single in the fifth that gave the Astros a 2-1 lead. Cameron Maybin made an attempted sliding catch but just knocked it down.

Angels: J.C. Ramirez will make his fifth appearance and second start on Wednesday night.

"We did a good job of capitalizing tonight", Bregman said. I like what I did today but I threw too much offspeed. It helped me when I was behind in the count and it helped me to put away those guys. "I was pounding the zone pretty good".

Altuve was key defensively in the fourth, turning an inning-ending double play that erased Martin Maldonado after a one-out single. Two batters and a pair of pitching changes later, Evan Gattis drove in Reddick from third, extending the lead to 3-1. Thursday he had quite the bounce back going 6.2 shutout innings, allowing just three hits and striking out eight in a 2-1 win over the Angels. McCullers is 2-1 with a 2.09 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 38 2/3 career frames against the Angels. His previous best was six against Atlanta on June 15, 2016.

"It's been a week where we're having trouble getting that that we need", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

Texas Tech initially said the game was being switched that Labor Day weekend after a request from the Big 12 and Fox Sports. Correa did take batting practice and fielded ground balls before Wednesday's game.

Angels: Alex Meyer will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday to make his first start of the season when the Angels open a four-game series against Toronto.

Eventually, Trout would walk over to a team staffer to get the sign taken off. Trout, to his credit, was a great sport about the prank.
