Angels Rally 11-5 For Ninth Straight Win At Home

Someday I'm Gonna Make Her Mine... - Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Despite a rough start by Hector Santiago, the halos rally from four down for the win!

Angels starter Hector Santiago gave up a grand slam to Chris Carter early in the 3rd inning but the Angels were unfazed and were able to wait out a gassed Scott Feldman to unload on the Astro bullpen in the home half of the 7th inning.

Down 5-2 entering the 7th inning, David Freese came off the bench, grabbed a bat and uncorked a 2-run home run to move the Angels within a run. Albert Pujols would also hit a big fly to deep left-center field to put the Angels on top 6-5 with two outs but the inning was far from done. CJ Cron hit a 3-run blast off Tony Sipp to add the exclamation point on the inning.

74 pitches delivered to 14 Angels batters in the frame marked the first time the Halos have sent up that many batters since Game 5 of the 2002 ALCS against Minnesota. Normally when you see your team give up a back-breaking grand slam it tends to sour your perspective on the game. Not so tonight when you see them counter for double damage and extend their home winning streak to nine games. As Mark and Victor mentioned on the broadcast tonight, the Angels are 20-3 at home as of late and lead the league in wins at home with their 29th.

The team will look to turn it up to 10 wins in a row at home tomorrow afternoon as Garrett Richards looks to solidify his case for an All-Star nomination.
