  1. Dusty Baker:

    If I can continue that, things will trend upward. Ohtani thinks this was his first walkoff hit since Game 3 of the 2016 Japan Series with the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters. He said he has adjusted his stance to give him a better view of the pitcher and the entire field. Houston trailed 5-2 going into the ninth before rallying to tie. Martin Maldonado led off with a single and moved to third on George Springers double off Ty Buttrey before scoring on a passed ball. George Springers brought The Astros within a run when George Springers scored on Josh Reddicks grounder to first. Michael Brantley lined a single to center before being lifted for a pinch-runner. Myles Straw stole second with two outs and tied it on Kyle Tuckers double off Matt Andriese. The Astros manager Dusty Baker bemoaned the missed opportunities. They were 3 for 24 with runners in scoring position and left 12 on base. We did fight back in the ninth, but a lot of times you lose the game before the ninth. It was very frustrating tonight to see opportunities squandered, he said. Andriese( 2-2) bounced back and retired seven straight to get the win as Los Angeles improved to 2-5 in extra-inning games. I can not give Matt Andriese enough praise, Joe Maddon said about Matt Andriese. Matt Andriese made just the one mistake pitch but did not cave. Dylan Bundy allowed only two runs in seven innings for The Angels. Dylan Bundy only trouble came in the fourth when Houston plated a pair to get within 4-2. Michael Brantley scored on Tuckers grounder to first, and Carlos Correas double drove in Yuli Gurriel. The Angels extended The Angels lead to 5-2 in the sixth on Andrelton Simmons RBI single. Dylan Bundy lowered Dylan Bundy ERA to 2.49, which is third in the AL. The right-hander struck out eight and allowed only six hits with one walk. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP TOUGH START, BETTER RELIEF McCullers made it through only five batters for the shortest start of his career. Andrelton Simmons led off with an infield single, Trout homered and McCullers loaded the bases with three straight walks. Baker said McCullers was not hurt, but that he hasnt pitched this many innings in a season since having Tommy John surgery on Tommy John right elbow in 2018. He didnt want to come out of the game.
