HOUSTON -- Tim Lincecum couldnt sugarcoat his performance after allowing a season-high eight runs, including three homers, before leaving in the second inning of the Los Angeles Angels 13-3 loss to the Houston Astros on Sunday. Jonathan Bullard Jersey .Its pretty embarrassing, to be honest with you, he said. To give up three home runs and give up seven or eight hits in that span is pretty pathetic. Ive got a lot of work to do.Jose Altuve hit two of Houstons season-high five homers and had a career-high six RBI to lead the Astros to the victory for a three-game sweep.Luis Valbuena, Preston Tucker and Evan Gattis also homered for the Astros, who extended their winning streak against the Angels to 11 games.Lincecum (2-4) lost his fourth decision in five starts by allowing seven hits in 1 1/3 innings in his shortest outing of the season.Its some of the things that have hurt him in previous starts, but obviously, this was of greater magnitude, manager Mike Scioscia said. He had a lot of trouble commanding his fastball, commanding his counts. Those guys got a lot of good pitches to hit, and they didnt miss today.Hed had great success against the Astros in his time with the Giants and entered the game 2-0 with a 0.34 ERA in four career starts at Minute Maid Park. He had a 16 1/3-inning scoreless streak here before Sunday when he allowed a season-high three homers.There were runners at first and second with no outs in the first when Altuve connected off him on a home run to left-center field to make it 3-0. Valbuenas home run came with one out in the inning to push the lead to 4-0.George Springer hit a two-run single with no outs in the second inning before scoring on Altuves second homer with one out to make it 8-0.Scioscia said Lincecum will stay in the rotation, but he has to figure out a way to get back on track.Its only going to work if he can harness his fastball command, first and foremost, Scioscia said. His secondary pitches are good if he has enough life on his fastball. But he has to be more proficient in getting back into counts when he does miss.Houston starter Mike Fiers (7-6) allowed nine hits and three runs in seven innings for the win.Tucker had a solo shot in Houstons three-run fifth inning. Gattis, who had a pair of homers on Friday night, homered in the sixth to make it 13-1.Altuve, who added an RBI single in the fifth, extended his hitting streak to nine games and stretched his streak against the Angels to 18 games. His 17 homers are a career high and he leads the majors with a .360 average. He hadnt driven in more than four runs in a game before Sunday.A sacrifice fly by Kole Calhoun gave the Angels a run in the third inning and Jett Bandy added a two-run homer in the seventh.The five home runs allowed were a season high for the Angels, who had to use six relievers following Lincecums early exit.Carlos Correa added three hits and an RBI for the Astros on a day when everyone in the starting lineup except Colby Rasmus got a hit.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (shoulder tightness) will make his first major league appearance since July 31, 2014, when he is called up from Triple-A Salt Lake to start on Tuesday. Skaggs hasnt pitched in the majors since having Tommy John surgery in 2014.Astros: 1B Marwin Gonzalez left the game in the fifth inning when he sprained left ankle running to first base. He is listed day to day. ... C Jason Castro was out of the lineup for the second straight game after being hit on the back of his right hand on a foul tip in the ninth inning Friday.UP NEXT:Angels: Hector Santiago (8-4, 4.32) will start for Los Angeles on Monday in the opener of a three-game series at Kansas City. Santiago has won a career-high four straight starts and has posted a 1.08 ERA in that span.Astros: Dallas Keuchel (6-9, 4.70) is scheduled to start the opener of a three-game series against the Yankees on Monday. Keuchel has won a season-high three straight decisions and will face the Yankees for the second time this season after getting a win against them on opening day. Devin Hester Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Kyle Long Jersey . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. http:///...em-hicks-jersey.aspx . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more.
