HOUSTON — Brian Goodwin drove in three runs, including a two-run single as part of a four-run first as the Los Angeles Angels snapped a three-game losing streak with a 12-5 win over the Houston Astros Tuesday night, splitting the doubleheader created by the approach of Hurricane Laura.

In the first game, rookie Cristian Javier (3-1) allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings and the Astros used a five-run first to beat the Angels, 6-3.

Laura was expected to make landfall on the Gulf Coast either Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Wednesday’s game already has been postponed.
