Game Recap: Astros Lose a Sloppy One to the Angels, 9-6

For a few innings, it looked like the Astros’ decision to use Josh James as an Opener and Framber Valdez as a Headliner might pay off. The Astros jumped out to an early lead in the first without any hits, with Alex Bregman, Yordan Álvarez, Yuli Gurriel, and Josh Reddick all working two-out walks (and with a wild pitch thrown in for good measure).

Things somehow got worse for Angels starter Griffin Canning in the second; after a lead-off strikeout, it went: walk, single (runner to third), wild pitch (run scored), walk (wild pitch, runner advances to third), RBI single (runner to third).
