Astros GIF Recap: Astros beat Angels 5-0

Stephen Dunn

The Houston Astros take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Los Angeles no wait Anaheim no wait Orange county....whatever.

After getting a good night of sleep I'm ready for some late games this weekend; Apparently so are the Astros:

1st Inning

Justin Maxwell gets the scoring started with a double that he tried to stretch into a triple. Replay's showed that Maxwell could have been called safe at third even though he was beaten by the throw (sorry didn't get a recording of the play at third).

Jason Castro followed Maxwell with a double and Chris Carter followed Castro with a walk. After a passed ball Rick Ankiel singled to left to score both runners giving the Astros a 3-0 lead.

In the bottom of the first inning after a runner reached, a double play and a Albert Pujols walk, Bud Norris struck out Josh Hamilton to end the inning.
