ANAHEIM, Calif. -- David Freese is starting to pick up his run production, which is something the Los Angeles Angels have been waiting half a season to see. Freese hit a two-run double, Matt Shoemaker pitched in and out of trouble for six innings, and the Angels beat the Houston Astros 5-2 Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. Freese has six RBIs in his last five games, two more than he had in the previous 27 games in which he had an at-bat. "Weve been talking about David for a while, and we need him," said manager Mike Scioscia, who has kept Freese in the bottom third of the batting order since June 17. "Hes a guy that potentially deepens the middle of your lineup. He hasnt gotten off to a good start, and were at the halfway point. "Hopefully hes finding a comfort level. I think the last 30 or so at-bats hes been driving the ball a little bit better." Shoemaker (6-2) allowed two runs, seven hits and three walks, and worked with runners on base in every inning. The right-hander, who began the season in the bullpen, gave up eight runs and 11 hits in four innings on Friday in a loss at Kansas City. He had been 5-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his seven previous starts this season. "It was a successful outing, but a little bit of a struggle," Shoemaker said. "I had to make some big pitches to get out of some jams, and the defence picked me up huge, making some big plays. It was a positive thing to bounce back from that outing to this one." Shoemaker had seven strikeouts against the Astros, giving him 57 through his first 10 big league starts. That broke the franchise record of 56 set by Bo Belinsky in 1962. "He has it in his game, thats for sure," Scioscia said. "If you look at his career in the minor leagues, he has struck out his share of guys. But you never know how a guys stuff is going to play in the major leagues until he gets an opportunity. "Shoe definitely has some out pitches and some pitches that he can get strikeouts with. But the best games hes going to throw are going to be the ones where hes in the zone early with good stuff and changing speeds and maybe getting some easier outs. He had to work hard to get through six innings." Jason Grilli, obtained from Pittsburgh on Friday, pitched a scoreless eighth in his home debut, and Joe Smith worked a hitless ninth for his 10th save. The Angels have won seven straight at home, their longest streak since another seven-game stretch in August 2006. Brett Oberholtzer (2-7) gave up five runs, nine hits and three walks over 6 1-3 innings in his third start since getting recalled from Triple-A on June 28. He was 0-6 with a 5.68 ERA in his first seven starts before back-to-back victories over Seattle and Baltimore. After the game, he was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Oberholtzer was bailed out by inning-ending double plays in the second and third innings, after giving up Howie Kendricks RBI single in the first. Mike Trout was doubled off second base in the third after rookie left fielder Enrique Hernandez made a diving catch of Albert Pujols sinking liner, but the Angels scored four runs in the fourth to grab a 5-2 lead. C.J. Cron tied it with an RBI single, and Freese doubled to right-centre, the fourth straight one-out hit. Freese scored on Chris Iannettas sac fly. Houston took a 2-1 lead in the third. Jose Altuve doubled after a leadoff walk to No. 9 hitter Marwin Gonzalez, Jason Castro singled off the glove of first baseman Pujols to drive in the Astros first run, and Altuve scored on a grounder by Springer. Shoemaker retired Dominguez on a double-play grounder after a walk to Singleton. "Its just tough, not scoring runs when you have situations with men on base early in the game where you can jump on a team," designated hitter Chris Carter said. "Were in a little rough patch now, but I think well be better the rest of the series." Altuve, who had three hits, leads the AL in batting (.347) and stolen bases (37). The only players who finished a season atop the league in both categories were Ty Cobb (1909, 1911 and 1917), George Sisler (1922), Snuffy Stirnweiss (1945) and Ichiro Suzuki (2001). "Hes definitely a phenomenal hitter and hes tough to get out, so you have to mess up his timing and make good pitches," Shoemaker said. NOTES: Scioscia earned his 1,281st regular-season victory, tying Whitey Herzog for 34th place on baseballs career list. Scioscia reached the mark in 57 fewer games. ... RHP Josh Fields will be reinstated from the disabled list on Friday to fill Oberholtzers roster spot. ... It was the 44th anniversary of the first no-hitter at the "Big A," thrown by Clyde Wright against Oakland. ...

The NFL announced Friday that the Texans sixth-year veteran offensive lineman will replace Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jason Peters in the Jan.The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup draw takes place Saturday in Ottawa and from that point on, Canada will know exactly what they’re up against when they host the globe’s top nations. Watch the drama unfold in the 2015 FIFA Womens World Cup Draw LIVE NOW on TSN1, TSN3 and TSN4. Canada will undoubtedly be watching the draw closely, since it was largely a stroke of luck – bad luck – that helped derail their 2011 World Cup aspirations. Heading into the 2011 draw as CONCACAF champions, the Canadians found themselves in the second seeding pot for the draw and wound up in one of the toughest groups in the tournament. The Canadians were handed the two-time defending champions from Germany, the top African qualifiers from Nigeria and a French team that went on to finish fourth at the tournament. Of course, scoring just one goal in three group stage matches was the true death knell for Canada, but the stiff competition did the team no favours. So, what does Saturday’s draw have to offer the Canadian women in terms of hope? Well, a lot, it turns out. The first helping hand comes from an expanded field. The tournament has expanded from 16 to 24 total teams for the 2015 World Cup, with 16 of those advancing to the knockout stage. The top two teams in each group will automatically qualify for the knockouts as will, the top four third-place teams. In simple mathematical terms, the odds of advancing just improved from 50/50 to a two-in-three chance. The other bounce the Canadians will be getting is that they automatically fall into the top seeding group as tournament hosts, meaning they are guaranteed to be free of the top five teams in the world during the group stage. This advantage can not be stressed enough, since two of those five teams wound up in their group last time around. The other five nations emerging as top seeds include: Japan, the United States, Germany, Brazil and France. In order, that’s: the reigning Champions, the reigning Olympic gold medalists, a two-time World Cup champion, a team that has won all but one South American title ever handed out, and the fourth-ranked team in the world. With a two-in-three chance of advancement, the likelihood of a true Group of Death at this tournament is diminished. That said, there is no shortage of scenarios that could make a team’s opening round uncomfortable and – by proxy – make their potential road through the knockout stage a nightmare. The first land mine for any tough group draw will likely come from the European pot: Pot 4. Teams in that group include: Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, England, Norway and the Netherlands. For those unaccustomed to the recent history of women’s soccer, that’s a group that includes: a Norwegian team that has made at least the semifinals in four of five previous World Cups including winning the 1995 title, a Swedish team that has made two of the last three semifinals and an England team that went unbeaten in European qualifying and outscored their opponents 52-1. Pot 3, which houses the remaining Asian and African qualifiers, allso has its share of tough draws.dddddddddddd Its six teams are: Australia, China, Korea Republic, Thailand, Colombia and Ecuador. The strength of the Asian qualifying tournament displays just how tough three of these teams are. Keep in mind that Japan enters this tournament as defending champions and Olympic silver medalists. Australia tied Japan in Asian qualifying, and China and Korea drew on the other side of the tournament. Japan needed extra-time to get by China in the tournament semis and beat Australia by a 1-0 margin in the Asian Cup Final. Three of these teams can hang in there with the champs and could make life very difficult for one of the top seeds. The least threatening pot is likely Pot 2, which houses the African and Oceanic qualifiers as well as the remaining CONCACAF teams: Nigeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Costa Rica, Mexico and New Zealand. That said, it’s a group that still includes a Continental Champion in Nigeria and a New Zealand team that comes in just outside the top 16 teams at the tournament according to the latest FIFA rankings. But what does all this mean for Canada and the top contenders? The possibilities for Canada are vast, since the only guarantees they have are that they will not be drawn with Mexico or Costa Rica out of Pot 2. Since the rules dictate that no team in Pots 2 or 3 can be drawn with a team from their own confederation, Canada will get either New Zealand or one of the African nations in their group. The best news is for Japan. Under the aforementioned confederation rules, they are guaranteed to avoid Australia, Korea Republic and China in the group phase. Brazil, meanwhile, has a 75 per cent chance of getting one of the three. For the other five teams, however, the possibilities are nearly endless. With all due respect to the 24 qualified teams for their achievements in advancing to the Women’s World Cup, here is a best- and worst-case scenario for Team Canada heading into Saturday’s draw based on FIFA’s World Rankings. Best case (FIFA rankings in parentheses): Canada (Cool, Switzerland (1Cool, Ecuador (49), Ivory Coast (64). Worst case (FIFA rankings in parentheses): Canada (Cool, Sweden (6), Australia (10), New Zealand (19).

Every group will have at least one European qualifier. ' ' '
