Late Rally by Astros Secures Win
Houston beat Los Angeles (A) at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, eking out a 4-3 win. The win was due in large part to pitcher Johnny Cueto, who earned player of the game honors. Houston reliever Carson Smith picked up the win, bumping his record to 2-2. Mike Johnson was collared with the loss. Dave Lacy got credit for the save for Houston. It was his 39th of the year.

The most critical at-bat came in the top of the ninth inning. With one out, Orlando Valdéz hit a 1-0 fastball from Mike Johnson for a solo home run. It put Houston in front, 4-3.

"Good win for us," said Valdéz. "Now we'll focus on the next one."

The first-place Astros raised their record to 82-72.
