ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) David Freese had a season-high four RBIs after getting reinstated from the disabled list, Tyler Skaggs pitched seven solid innings and the Los Angeles Angels scored five unearned runs against Scott Feldman to beat the Houston Astros 9-3 on Tuesday night.
Mike Trout had three RBIs in his second game of the season as a designated hitter, helping the Angels win for the ninth time in 12 games. It was only the third multi-RBI game this month for Trout, who hit a two-run double against Toronto's Mark Buehrle on May 12 and a walkoff three-run homer last Thursday against Tampa Bay's Brad Boxberger in the ninth inning of a 6-5 win.
Freese played for the first time since May 2, when he sustained a non-displaced fracture in the middle finger of his right hand after getting hit by a pitch from Texas' Colby Lewis.
