Astros Clobber Angels


Justin Verlander and three relievers combined on a seven-hit shutout as the Astros clobbered the Angels 7-0 in Anaheim.  Verlander struck out 11 across  six innings of five-hit ball for the win.  Josh Reddick hit a solo homer and George Springer added a grand-slam in a five-run sixth to blow the game open.  Houston has won four-of-five and improved to 66-and-35  overall.  Los Angeles starter Nick Tropeano surrendered two-runs in five  innings to take the loss.  The Halos stranded nine runners on base as  they dropped their third-straight.
