MLB: Houston Astros take advantage of Los Angeles Dodgers
After the wild Game 2, the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers delivered a more classic Friday night game in Texas. But the crowd at Minute Maid Park rejoiced in the Astros’ 5-3 victory. The latter made the difference from the second round. A Yulieski Guriel home run opened the scoring (1-0) and a Houston festival. Hits from Marwin Gonzalez and Brian McCann then a sacrifice from Alex Bregman allowed the locals to add three runs (4-0) and chase Los Angeles starting pitcher Yu Darvish from the mound before the end of the game. sleeve.
Then, the Astros controlled the game thanks to the great evening of their pitchers, in particular the substitute Brad Peacock who eliminated the last eleven batters of the Dodgers by conceding only one walk (base on balls) and not the slightest hit. Houston will have the opportunity to take the break, still at home, on Saturday. Until then, it will be necessary to follow if the controversy concerning Guriel grows. After his home run, the Houston player was seen making a racist sign mocking Darvish. He was called up by MLB and could face a suspension if found guilty.
