Beltran's first Houston homer helps Astros top Angels 2-1

Astros SS Correa out of lineup with hand injury

"I said last night I had to mix my pitches".

In Tuesday's matchup, the Angels scored four runs in the fifth inning on the way to a 5-2 victory. "I don't think anyone was doubting that we wouldn't get back on track".

Morton stranded two baserunners in the first, left the bases loaded in the second and left runners on the corners in the third.

In three starts this season, Shoemaker has yet to post a quality start.

"I don't get caught up in homers", he said. "I never like to be as sporadic, especially with my sinker because it was all over the place". The Astros are winners of six of their last seven and watched Josh Reddick fall a single shy of the cycle on Wednesday. I think the process is right it's just one of those times right now where we're not getting enough guys on base early in innings and getting that big hit. Over three starts this season, Keuchel holds a 2-0 record, a 0.86 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 21.0 innings. He went just 4.1 innings, giving up eight hits and five earned runs. "Today was a good day and I felt good going into it".

The last time McCullers faced the Angels was on 7/22/16, a game in which he struck out Mike Trout swinging 3 times.

"We did a good job of capitalizing tonight", Bregman said.

Jesse Chavez (1-2) allowed two runs and seven hits. The Angels, who have lost six straight, were shut out in consecutive games for the first time since July 28-29, 2012, against Tampa Bay.

"We had a couple chances but not a lot", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

Carlos Correa returns to the lineup after being hit by a pitch in the hand in the aforementioned game on Saturday in Oakland.

Manager AJ Hinch reiterated Tuesday that Correa (hand) is truly day-to-day, MLB Network Radio reports. "Initially we planned on playing him", Hinch said. He woke up this morning, didn't feel great, still some lingering soreness. The only other Astros starter to open a season allowing one run or fewer in each of his first four outings while going at least seven innings was Roger Clemens in 2005.

OUR PICK: The Astros are 5-1 in McCullers Jr.'s last six starts and are 4-1 in his last five home starts.

Angels: J.C. Ramirez will make his fifth appearance and second start on Wednesday night.

-- Astros top pitching prospect Francis Martes is scheduled to make his third start for Class AAA Fresno on Saturday.

Luke Gregerson had a clean eighth inning with one strikeout.
