After winning the opener the Astros go for the series win against the struggling Angels.

ust so everyone's aware Astros County put out this earlier this evening:

1st Inning

Chris Carter A.K.A. Trogdor gets the Astros on the board with this bomb to center field.

5th Inning

With runners on, Lucas Harrel strikes out the side in the fifth inning.

6th Inning

With two outs in the sixth inning Wallace dropped what would have been an a spectacular inning ending defensive play by Marwin Gonzalez. Unfortunately, he couldn't handle the bounce at first enraging me to make this GIF. I call it, "How to pick and how not to pick" featuring Carlos Pena (good pick) and Wallace (bad pick):

What was annoying about Wallace's failed pick was that it ended Lucas Harrell's night.

7th Inning

With the bases loaded Matt Dominguez drives in a run with a single to right field.

Marwin Gonzalez followed with an RBI squeeze to give the Astros a 4-1 lead over the Angels.

8th Inning

The Astros salvage the eighth inning by getting Howie Kendrick out on some bad base running. The Astros prior to that out had allowed the Angels to get within one run.

Unfortunately, the Astros allowed the tieing run and the winning run to reach base setting up a Jose Veras vs. Albert Pujols match-up. Pujols delivered with a double down the left field line. that scored the tieing run and the winning run (Mike Trout) for an Angels walk off win.

Game Thoughts

It's late and I'm deflated by the loss so I bid you adieu and good night.
