Astros Use Late-Game Magic to Beat Angels
Angel Stadium of Anaheim was the site of an exciting ballgame between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles (A) Angels.

The Astros had to overcome a fine performance from Los Angeles (A) pitcher Kyle Crick to grab a 3-2 win at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Crick allowed 2 earned runs over 7 innings. The slumping Angels have dropped 6 in a row.

Runs were scarce in this one. So, Lachlan Fontaine's at-bat in the top of the ninth was vitally important. With two out, the Houston third baseman hit a run-scoring double, to give his team a 3-2 lead.

"We need to keep playing good baseball," Fontaine told the Houston Bulletin.
