The Astros head to Angel Stadium looking to chalk up their fourth consecutive win over their AL West rivals. Read on to find out how to get a live stream of the Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels MLB three-match series, no matter where you are in the world.
The Astros kicked off the Covid-19-compressed 2020 season in fine form, taking three out of four games against the Mariners, but come into this series having been brushed aside by the Dodgers at Minute Maid Park in their midweek double-header and will be looking to get back on track.
Despite the slip up at home, Houston remain Divisional leaders and have looked great offensively, with an impressive .236 batting average, with Michael Brantley leading the way having notched up one home run and six RBI's.
The Angels meanwhile, have made a slow start to the new campaign, fumbling to four defeats in their first six games. They nevertheless still find themselves just one game behind the Astors and remain in contention in the division.
While evenly matched against their opponents at the bat - the Angels have a slightly better .238 batting average - there's work to be done on the mound, with their 1.32 WHIP a lowly 21st in the league.
