Angels Lose to Astros, 6-1
Houston Astros starter Kevin Helms was in fine form against the Los Angeles (A) Angels at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, leading his team to a 6-1 win. In 7 innings, Helms surrendered 2 hits, while striking out 5 and walking 2. He allowed 1 run. The Astros' win now puts them at 53-75.

The Astros got a big at-bat from catcher Josh Evans. For the game, Evans went 2-5 with a double. In the top of the sixth, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 99th hit of the season gave Houston a 2-1 lead.

"This isn't football or hockey where you can overwhelm your opponents," Evans told the Houston Daily News. "Everyone gets 27 outs and we happened to make the most of them."
