Angels Narrowly defeated by Juggernaut Houston

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Angels 4 Astros 6

The Astros magic number fell to 1 after they barely squeaked out a win against the Angels. This, despite a pitching matchup between Zack Grienke and Jaime Barria. Sure, Grienke walked a way win a win - but just barely, after giving up all 4 of the Angels runs across 5 innings of work.

Aside from Jaime Barria, the lock-down Angels bullpen didn’t allowed a single run.

Kevan Smith and Andrelton Simmons both drove in a pair of runs and the Angels with 3 for 5 with runners in scoring position

Not a bad line against a team that is about to clinch the AL West title.
