Astros Outmuscle Los Angeles (A), 11-8
The Houston Astros had to overcome a big game from Los Angeles (A) left fielder Corey Ray to leave Minute Maid Park with a 11-8 victory. Ray was 4 for 4 with a home run, a double, 2 singles, and was hit by a pitch, while scoring 3 runs. Johnny Cueto, who went 6 innings, was the winning pitcher. He was charged with 1 run on 4 hits, while walking 0 and striking out 9. His record now stands at 9-8. Houston, at 60-60, sits in third place in the American League Western Division.

The Astros beat the Angels in part due to timely hitting. Case in point: the two-out home run Tim Cobb produced in the bottom of the first. Batting against Los Angeles (A) pitcher Yoan Lopez, Cobb gave his team a 2-0 lead when he hit a 2-run home run.

"We got the victory," said Cobb. "That's all that matters at the end of the day."
