Feldman, 5 HRs help Astros beat Angels 7-4

HOUSTON (AP) Scott Feldman threw seven strong innings, five Astros homered, and Houston snapped a three-game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

Feldman (2-0) did not allow a hit until two outs in the fourth, when Josh Hamilton dribbled one toward first base that went under the glove of Feldman, who charged at it off the mound.

The right-hander allowed his first run in 11 1-3 innings this season in the fifth on a groundout to second by Erick Aybar that cut the lead to 4-1.

Chad Qualls got the last two outs for his first save of the season.

Jason Castro, Matt Dominguez, Jesus Guzman and Alex Presley homered off Jered Weaver (0-2). Jonathan Villar added a two-run shot in the seventh off Matt Shoemaker.
