Los Angeles Angels
The Angels scored the first two runs of Friday’s game in Houston but Zack Greinke settled down to pitch into the seventh without allowing any more damage.
Greinke finished with a strange line for Houston: 6.2 innings, 10 hits, two earned runs, no walks and one strikeout. It was almost exactly three years ago he last had just one K in a start. He’s now had starts of one and two strikeouts in his four as a ‘Stro.
The Angels ended up giving up the lead, though. Houston tied it with a run in the third, a run in the fourth, and took the lead with two in the fifth on a Yuli Gurriel oppo-bomb.
LA made it 4–3; then Houston made it 5–3; then LA scored again, 5–4, and that’s where it ended. Roberto Osuna nailed down the save for the 30th time this season, the third time in four years he’s reached that milestone.
Friday’s win gave the Astros five in their last six but Houston has some injury problems that have cropped up in the last week here.
Carlos Correa is back on the DL with a back problem. It was his back that held him out and held him back last year and it’s bothering him again. Houston is taking it extra cautiously with their shortstop so hopefully he will be good to go after some rest but it is a cause for concern.
Then there’s Ryan Pressly, who had surgery on his right knee this week. It was a minor procedure and there’s hope he’ll be back for the start of the playoffs but injuries right around that time are tricky. He’s been the a stalwart setting up Osuna that Houston can ill afford to miss. To me, it’s a concerning an ominous injury that isn’t getting enough attention in futures markets.
