ANAHEIM – The Angels fans, who had waited more than a year to boo the Houston Astros, finally got their chance on Monday night.

The angels then retaliated most satisfactorily and beat the Astros 7: 6 on a night full of mockery and colorful chants and two trash cans thrown on the field.

The Angels scored four runs in the eighth inning to complete the comeback after an early deficit of four runs. It was the third time in the first five games that the Angels came from behind in the eighth inning en route to their first 4-1 start since 2007.

« This is important when you’re done and we’ve done it many times, » said manager Joe Maddon of the comeback. “That absolutely creates the credibility that we can do it again and against good pitching. There is a trust factor. « 

The Angels overcame one-run deficits in the eighth run against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday and Saturday, but two runs in the eighth on Monday.

Albert Pujols and José Iglesias were each performed individually, and then Shohei Ohtani was hit with bad luck to load the bases. Dexter Fowler, who had previously pitched in three fields with loaded bases, drove as a single driver.

A David Fletcher Groundout rode in a tie run. And then Jared Walsh landed in first place and Ohtani slipped home from Yuli Gurriel’s faulty throw to bring the Angels forward.

After a deliberate walk with Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon hit a victim fly for an insurance run.

The four runs were created with no additional base hits, and two of the outs ran in runs. The angels did not strike in the inning.

« It’s a bad process to think that everyone is going to hit home runs all the time, » said Maddon. « I love it when the ball is moving when you face pitchers that won’t make mistakes. »

Mike Mayers then completed it and allowed Kyle Tucker a solo homer. The closer Raisel Iglesias had the night off after recording five outs on Sunday.

Aside from the win, the fans seemed to enjoy booing the Astros at every opportunity.

Of course, the Astros played in empty stadiums last season. Fans couldn’t wait to tell them what they thought of the 2017 fraud scandal in which they stole catchers’ signs from a monitor next to the shelter and knocked on a trash can to signal which parking spaces were coming.

« It was a crazy atmosphere out there, » said Trout. « I saw a couple of trash cans fall behind me. »

José Altuve, Yuli Gurriel, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa are the four main holdovers of this team, so they got the most boos.

However, all four responded with singles in the first inning and helped the Astros take a 3-0 lead. The third run scored when catcher Kurt Suzuki failed to score a third hit that would have ended the inning.

José Quintana stabilized shortly after that disappointing debut inning with the Angels. He hit four over the next two goalless innings but was knocked out when he allowed three of the first four hits in the fourth hit. One of them scored to make it 4-0 for the Astros.

Trout then hit his first homer of the season, a 417-foot shot down the left field line to get the Angels on the board. Trout, who also singled and walked twice, is 6 for 15 with eight walks through the first five games of the season.

After Trout’s Homer, three consecutive singles pulled them within 4-2 and they had an out on the bases, but Fowler hit three pitches and Fletcher took a left.

The Angels recovered again in the fifth and reduced the deficit to 4: 3, but left two runners on the base.

Rookie Chris Rodriguez gave up a run in sixth and the Angels followed two runs before their rally in eighth.

« We have a great thing in the clubhouse, » said Trout. “The atmosphere is incredible. We’re all together and having fun. We don’t think we’re out of a game.  »
