Astros top Angels with the help of five home runs

A messy ninth inning didn’t put a damper on a five-home run day for the Astros. Some thought Scott Feldman was overpaid this winter. A reactionary might suggest now that he’s underpaid. The righthander became the first Astros pitcher to reach seven innings Sunday in a 7-4 win over the Angels, and he’s 2-0 to start the year. He allowed only one run, ending the Astros’ losing...

Astros choose Scott Feldman as Opening Day starter

Houston has named Scott Feldman as its Opening Day starter after signing the veteran right-hander to a three-year, $30 million contract as a free agent this offseason. Feldman is 31 years old with a 4.62 career ERA and it would be easy to make some jokes about him being the Astros’ choice, but whatever. They’re really bad now and in the relatively near future they’ll probably...

Feldman continues to come up big for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas Maybe all it took to get Scott Feldman going this season was mentioning the Texas Rangers and their pursuit of pitching from outside the organization.
