Boxscore Breakdown #87: Making it look easy – Angels 6, Astros 1

After two days of dramatic come-from-behind wins, the Halos finally decided to take it easy on us and won this game relatively handy. It wasn’t a cakewalk or anything, but the outcome seemed pretty well secure early in the game and required no special offensive explosions. It may not have been as fun, but fun is overrated. Run Expectancy Rundown Kole Calhoun had the big game,...
