Josh Hamilton Walk Off Homer Defeats Astros

HEY CAMERAMAN - Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Wow!

Final Score in Anaheim: Angels 6 Astros 5

The Angels blew a lead and then clawed their way back, went into extra innings and enjoyed a walk off home run, the 104th in franchise history. Josh Hamilton hit his eighteenth home run of the season to break tenth-inning tie.

Ernesto Frieri was suddenly a good pitcher and got the W with two innings of shutout relief, most impressively striking out four of the six batters he faced.

Garrett Richards came off a masterful performance against the Yankees but played to the competition, this being the lowly Astros he had to give them a reason to think they were in this game and allowed five runs in six innings.

The Angels blew a 1-0 lead and a 4-2 lead but came back to tie the game 5-5 in the seventh inning. Mark Trumbo was 2 for 5 with a solo home run (his 27th) and a two-run triple. Mike Trout was 1 for 3 and walked twice. He scored two runs in the game.

After the game a Beatles cover band entertained the crowd. It was a hard day's night on both ends.
