Rookie Jeremy Peña has done it again!
The Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 on Sunday afternooon, with Peña ending things with a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning, sending the Minute Maid Park crowd home happy. It’s the second time this season that Peña has been a walk-off hero for the Astros.
And that was Peña’s second home run of the game. He had a homer in the fourth inning and finished the game 4-5 with 3 RBI.
Peña’s heroics capped off quite the all-around strong day from the entire team. Houston pitchers set a franchise 9-inning record with 20 strikeouts on Sunday, giving up only 3 hits, as the team capped off a sweep of the Angels with their sixth straight win overall.
The Astros now get ready to start a 4-game home series Monday against the Kansas City Royals.
