At the start of this game, the Angels and Astros were in a virtual tie, for first place in the AL West. The angels were the first on the board, with two runs in the first inning. By the time Jose Altuve came up in the top of the sixth inning, the angels held a 3 to 1 lead. Altuve looked this ball in for the first three pitches. With a count of two balls and one strike, Jaime Barria threw this ball as an 81.7 MPH slider. Altuve was compelled to deliver this pitch to the man he displaced as reigning American League MVP when he hit a line drive to Mike Trout in center field. The hit fell in for a single, traveling 250 feet. Houston was unable to build on the momentum, as the next batter, Carlos Correa saw this same ball remain in play for the first four pitches of his at-bat. The fourth pitch hit the dirt and the ball was retired before Correa could complete his strikeout. The score remained the same in the eighth inning when Altuve came up to bat again, this time with the bases loaded. This time, Altuve made the difference in the game, clearing the bases when he hit a 3 run double. The Astros added one more run in the ninth and won the game 5-3. The Astros came out of this game with a record of 27-17 and held a one-game lead over the Angels.
