(AP Photo/Eric Christian Smith)ExpandHOUSTON — Matt Thaiss yanked a ground ball down the first base line and it slipped under the glove of first baseman Yuli Gurriel.Just when Thaiss may have figured he and the Angels had caught a break to help them get back in the game, second baseman José Altuve appeared. He gloved the ball along the line in shallow right field and fired it right back to Gurriel, barely retiring Thaiss to end the inning and strand another runner.That’s how the night went for the Angels in their 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Saturday, as too many of their hopeful moments ended with disappointment.“I was a little shocked to see Altuve over that far,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “He’s an MVP for a reason.” Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield The next three hitters all reached to load the bases for Trout, representing the tying run with two outs. Trout hit a line drive to center field, where George Springer caught it drifting back toward the warning track.Trout, who singled home a run in the seventh, now has 2 hits in his 18 at-bats.“It got in on me a little bit (with the bases loaded),” Trout said, “but the last three at-bats, that’s probably the best I felt in the last week. So that’s a positive.”In the sixth, the Angels loaded the bases again, but this time Thaiss stranded them with a strikeout.Trout drove in a run with a single in the seventh, but the Angels could not cut into any more of the deficit that Dillon Peters left them.Peters gave up five runs in 4-2/3 innings, with all of the damage coming on two swings.In the first inning, Altuve hit a ball that dropped just beyond the dive of Trout, going to the wall for a triple. Peters then threw a fastball over the inner half of the plate to Michael Brantley, who lifted it just over the right field fence for a two-run homer.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Altuve led off the third with a double and then Brantley was hit by a pitch. Alex Bregman followed by spinning on another inside fastball, lining it over the short left-field fence for a three-run blast.Peters retired the six hitters and did not give up another hit until the Yordan Alvarez double that knocked him out of the game in the fifth.Although Peters’ took some solace in the fact that he pitched well after the homers, he regretted that he couldn’t throw better two-strike pitches to Brantley or Bregman.“Those guys both hit balls inside, in the honey hole,” Peters said. “Obviously I hoped for them to be a little more in. Those two pitches were big mistakes. I have to just get better and in a 1-2 count execute it, and have it be a ball, not a home run.” After falling behind by five runs before they even had their first baserunner, the Angels loaded the bases in the fifth and sixth, leaving them loaded both times.“Couldn’t come up with a real big hit to push us right back to the brink,” Ausmus said. “But the bullpen did a good job. We didn’t quite do it, but I felt like we could. We were right there. We just couldn’t get the big hit.”All told, the Angels had 14 baserunners over the final six innings, but they could not get enough of them home to avoid their fifth loss in the six games of this trip through Texas. After losing on three walk-offs in Texas, they were 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position and lost by one run on Friday.“We had our chances for sure,” Mike Trout said. “We lost some tough ones in Texas. Obviously we had chances tonight and yesterday. We just gotta stay positive and try to win a ballgame tomorrow.”The Angels’ first run came on Luís Rengifo’s 425-foot homer to the train tracks at Minute Maid Park, his sixth homer of the season.last_img read more
