Morton, 3 Astros relievers combine to 5-hit Angels, 3-0

Morton, 3 Astros relievers combine to 5-hit Angels, 3-0

Over the last four games, the Astros have combined to score 34 runs to support the pitching staff.

Yuli Gurriel sent the first pitch of Houston's third to the seats in left field, and the Astros took a 2-1 lead when Springer connected on his home run with one out in the inning.

"I don't remember", he said.

Morton stranded two baserunners in the first, left the bases loaded in the second and left runners on the corners in the third. Meyer is 0-0 with a 4.80 ERA in three minor league starts this season.

"I've just been feeling good and trying to ride the momentum and quality of pitches into the next start", Keuchel said. "I never like to be as sporadic, especially with my sinker because it was all over the place". Devenski fanned four today and has a 25/1 K/BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings to date.

The Astros pitchers sat down the last 14 batters for the Angels to get the shutout.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the fatal shooting in a statement by the jihadists' propaganda agency Amaq. Francois Fillon, who is the conservative candidate, said he would cancel the campaign events he had been planning for Friday.

Bud Norris pitched a scoreless seventh in his first appearance at Minute Maid Park since being traded by the Astros in 2013. In four starts against the Astros a year ago, Shoemaker had an ERA of only 2.22. He allowed five runs on eight hits with one walk while striking out six over 4 1/3 innings last Saturday against the A's. "We're going to go right now day to day and see how guys match up and get them out there. Last two games haven't worked our way, but we put ourselves in position to have a chance".

"We did a good job of capitalizing tonight", Alex Bregman said.

"When you have a rough outing, as far as the stat line goes, you really have to break it down because you could have a good outing with the state line and be really bad".

McCullers turned in two straight quality starts to begin the campaign but fell off at Oakland on Friday, when he was reached for five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

"Any time there's a close game, there's a little more pressure, but those are the types of games we like to play in", Bregman said.

Shortstop Carlos Correa will not be in the Houston Astros' lineup Monday night against the Los Angeles Angels because of a bruised right hand. Hinch said he will be day to day and that it was a simple decision to keep him out. "He's got some questions to answer but things are pointing in the right direction", Hinch said. McCullers does not feel though that the team is ahead of schedule, even considering it took them almost a month longer to accomplish this many wins last season.
