In the immortal words of Deion Sanders, "If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good." And the Astros looked good on Saturday night. The team celebrated the original 1965 Astros with throwback uniforms, entertainment, and ground crews outfits. The Astros looked good in arguably the best uniforms in team history, and they played good.

Dallas Keuchel continued his stellar start to the 2015, pitching six scoreless innings.  Keuchel struck out seven, allowed two hits, and walked three.

The Angels were only able to get three base runners in scoring position during the entirety of Saturday's game. Chad Qualls rebounded with a clean seven inning, striking out the side. Pat Neshek and Luke Gregson finished the game with two scoreless innings. Gregerson picked up his

George Springer picked up his first Springer Dinger of the season in the sixth. Springer's home run was a laser shot off the Laundry's sign above the Crawford Boxes. Clearly the baseball gods were rewarding him with good favor because of his stirrups.

Jake Marisnick started a two-out rally in the seventh, he would reach with a single to left and stole second. The Angles walked Jonathan Villar to get to Robbie Grossman. Grossman made Los Angeles play popping home run into the Crawford Boxes. He knew it was a home run off the bat and pimped a walk to first.

The beard and home run blasts were too much for the Angels, 4-0. Houston completes their series with Angles at 1:10 PM (CT) on Sunday.
