McHugh goes 7 2/3 innings, Astros beat Angels 3-0

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Collin McHugh pitched three-hit ball over 7 2/3 innings to help the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 on Saturday night.

Jose Altuve reached base three times and scored once, Jake Marisnick went 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI and Evan Gattis drove in two runs.

McHugh (13-10) was perfect through 4 2/3 innings until Andrelton Simmons singled through the right side. In his longest start since May 30, McHugh walked one and struck out five to win his sixth decision in his last eight starts. McHugh has dominated Los Angeles, winning eight straight dating to the 2014 season.

Tyler Skaggs (3-4) was removed after 1 2/3 innings.

Ken Giles converted his 15th save.
