Jon Singleton homered and knocked in two runs in his Major League debut as the Astros opened a 3-game series against the Los Angeles Angels Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park with a 7-2 win.

Singleton’s home run, the first base hit of his career, came in the eighth inning, scoring the Astros 6th run of the night. He finished the night 1-for-3 and worked a bases loaded walk in the Astros 5-run third inning. Angels’ starter CJ Wilson walked the bases loaded, and Jason Castro’s 2-run single put Houston on the board. Matt Dominguez singled to load the bases for Singleton, who walked in the inning’s third run, then Robbie Grossman made it 5-0 with a single, chasing Wilson from the game. He got the loss, dropping his record to 6-5.

The five runs were more than enough for the Astros staff, which held Los Angeles to five hits.  Collin McHugh earned his fourth win of season, allowing two hits in five scoreless innings.

After Singleton’s eighth inning home run, Chris Carter hit his ninth homer of the season to make it a 7-2 game.

Dominguez and Fowler had two hits for Houston. George Springer was held hitless, but did walk twice. Houston worked seven walks as a team.

Collin Cowgill accounted for the Angels first run of the night with an eighth inning home run, his fourth of the season.

Josh Hamilton made it a 5-2 game with his third home run of the year his return from a 2-month disabled list stint, but Mike Trout left the game in the second inning with mid-back discomfort.
