Springer's slam, Verlander's K's send Astros past Halos, 7-0

George Springer hit a grand slam while the Astros batted around in the sixth inning, and Justin Verlander ended his six-start winless streak with 11 strikeouts over six dominant innings in Houston's 7-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday...

Shohei Ohtani is one of only two Angels with multiple hits against the Astros today. His three swings produced exit velocities of 108.3, 106.5 and 106.9 mph, per Statcast.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Shohei Ohtani's 106-mph double off Justin Verlander gave him 19 extra-base hits in 142 at-bats this season. He's slugging .517, 109 points above the league average.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Angels who are healthy are batting a combined .102 in their careers against Justin Verlander, with 57 strikeouts in 167 at-bats. With the 4 o'clock start, they'll also spend some time hitting in the shadows. This should be fun.

Justin Upton's line drive bounced off the glove of an outstretched Marwin Gonzalez and was ruled, controversially, a base hit, breaking up Dallas Keuchel's no-hitter with two outs in the seventh inning. Tough play, but you have to think Carlos Correa makes it if he isn't on the DL.
