Jose Altuve went 4 for 5 and scored four runs to help the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 10-4 on Wednesday and complete the sweep of the three-game series. It was the second time Houston has swept Los Angeles in the last two weeks. The Astros finished the six games with 37 runs. It was also Houston's eighth straight win over their AL West rivals, extending the longest winning streak against Los Angeles in franchise history. Houston has gone 35-20 since May 1, the third-best mark in the AL in that span. The Angels, who left 12 men on base, finished the homestand 1-6 and went 8-18 over the month of June. The Angels are a season-high 15 games under .500 (32-47). It's the fewest wins
Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton and left fielder Adam Duvall converged on an Anthony Rizzo fly ball in the top of the first inning, leading to disaster. The ball glanced off of Duvall’s glove, hit Hamilton in the face, and rolled away. Hamilton laid on the ground in pain while Duvall tracked the ball down. Two runners scored easily and Rizzo wheeled around third base, scoring easily for an inside-the-park three-run home run. Hamilton exited the game under his own power, replaced by Tyler Holt. The Reds will likely pass along information on Hamilton’s status after the game.
