ANAHEIM, Calif. -- While the Houston Astros are rocketing up the AL standings, the Los Angeles Angels are plummeting at roughly the same rate of speed.Tim Lincecum tried to change things Tuesday night, but both teams kept going their separate ways.Carlos Correa hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and the Astros beat Lincecum and the Angels 7-1 for their ninth win in 10 games.Correa went 3 for 4 and matched his career high with four RBI as Houston easily improved to 34-20 since May 1. The Astros also beat the Angels for the seventh straight time, their longest winning streak in the rivalrys history.We expect to win the way were playing, which is good, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. We do have a nice little vibe about us, a little swagger. Weve got our confidence back.Scott Feldman (5-3) yielded three hits in five innings to win his first start since April 24 for the Astros. Feldman was a stopgap starter after making 16 appearances out of the bullpen over the past two months, but he kept Houston moving flawlessly forward while allowing no earned runs or walks.Ive been doing the bullpen thing, so I had to try to remember my routine for (starting), said Feldman, a starter for most of the previous eight seasons. But it was a lot of fun.Albert Pujols third-inning single drove in the only run for last-place Los Angeles (32-46), which has lost eight of nine. Before the game, general manager Billy Eppler said manager Mike Scioscias job is not in jeopardy with the Angels, whose injury-riddled starting rotation has been their biggest obstacle.Lincecum (1-2) couldnt get through the fifth inning in his third start for the Angels, yielding seven hits, four walks and five runs. It was the two-time Cy Young winners second straight bumpy outing after a promising debut.My fastball command was pretty terrible, Lincecum said. I didnt get a chance to establish the zone and work around that. I felt myself becoming one-dimensional again with my changeup and not really finding a way out. That team is a good hitting team. They punched the balls when they were up in the zone and made me pay for it.Lincecum has a 6.75 ERA after three starts for the Angels, who signed the longtime San Francisco Giants star to patch that rotation. While he struck out seven Astros, he also struggled with control -- throwing just 55 strikes in 101 pitches -- and served up too many hittable balls to the Astros surging lineup.Lincecum was in trouble again after four Houston batters. He started with a four-pitch walk to George Springer, and Jose Altuve also drew a four-pitch walk before Correa put his 13th homer far over the left field fence. Correa had never faced Lincecum before that shot.I knew he was going to try to throw some changeups and get me to chase, Correa said. Its big to score early in the game.Marwin Gonzalez tripled in the fourth and scored on Carlos Gomezs double. Colby Rasmus one-out single in the fifth chased Lincecum, and Gonzalez bunted home Houstons fifth run moments later.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: Feldman filled in for RHP Lance McCullers, whose rotation turn was skipped due to a blister. McCullers expects to return Monday for his next start, although Feldman wouldnt mind another shot. I love starting, Feldman said. But I also love being on this team, and were winning a lot of games right now.Angels: 3B Yunel Escobar missed another game with a bone bruise in his left knee. Scioscia hopes he is available Friday in Boston. ... C Geovany Soto is closing in on a rehab assignment after working out in the bullpen Tuesday. He has been out since mid-May after knee surgery.UP NEXTAstros: Dallas Keuchel (4-9, 5.35 ERA) beat Kansas City last week for his first win in five June starts, but the AL Cy Young winners weird season continues.Angels: Jered Weaver (6-6, 5.24 ERA) has been solid in recent weeks, but had a rough outing against Oakland earlier in this homestand. He has a 3.26 ERA in 10 career games against Houston. Nike Zoom Wholesale Uk . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0.

But we found a way to win, and the other two we lost, maybe we deserved better. Thats hockey.Patrick Marleau scored 12 seconds into the game and Paul Martin added his first goal of the season for the Sharks, who had allowed late tiebreaking goals in their previous two games to lose to Ottawa and Anaheim.Backup goalie Aaron Dell made 30 saves to earn his third win in four starts this season. His only loss was a 1-0 defeat in Carolina last month but he got much more support this game.Its always nice to get some good bounces like that, Martin said. Most of the season weve been creating chances, getting pucks to the net. At some point its nice to get rewarded for that kind of stuff when guys are working hard and creating opportunities.Lee Stempniak and Derek Ryan scored power-play goals and Joakim Nordstrom added a short-handed tally but it wasnt enough for the Hurricanes, who earned three points on their three-game California swing. Cam Ward made 16 saves.They had momentum right off the bat, Carolina coach Bill Peters said.

Marleau started it when Justin Braun sprung Joe Thornton on a 2 on 1 to set up the quick score.The teams then traded goals shortly after that with Stempniak scoring first goal in 23 games on the power play before Martins point shot deflected off defenseman Brett Pesces skate to put San Jose back ahead.Game notes The fastest goal in Sharks history came 8 seconds into the game by Stephane Matteau on Jan. 11, 2000, against St. Louis. ...
