Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead, two-run home run, and C.J. Cron and pinch-hitter David Freese also homered against the Houston bullpen in the Angels’ eight-run seventh inning as Los Angeles beat the Astros 11-5 on Saturday night for their ninth straight home win.
Tyler Skaggs put a bad start behind him in the best way possible: by carving up his next opponent.
C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
