HOUSTON -- Ricky Nolasco latest solid outing snapped a lengthy losing streak for the Los Angeles Angels.Albert Pujols hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Nolasco pitched seven strong innings, helping Los Angeles hinder the Houston Astros wild-card hopes with a 2-0 victory Thursday night.The Angels ended an 11-game skid and pushed Houston 1 1/2 games behind the Tigers for the second AL wild card.Its nice to win, Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. We have played some tough games. Those guys have had our number. Theyre a tough team. They have played well against us, but we are going to keep playing hard.Pujols homered into the Crawford Boxes in left field, helping Los Angeles move to 2-11 against the Astros this season.Obviously, you want to take the lead right away, especially when those guys have been playing pretty well against us this year, Pujols said. It was one of those things that I got a good pitch to hit and got a good swing. Nolasco did a heck of a job throwing seven innings. It is not easy to pitch against those guys over there. They have a heck of a lineup.Nolasco (7-14) gave up five singles and struck out five.I was spinning the ball pretty good, Nolasco said. I thought I was feeling the strike zone for the most part. I was challenging with fastballs when I had to. I was pitching off some good breaking balls to keep them off balanced.He did not allow a baserunner past second. Nolasco had a second straight scoreless start after throwing six shutout innings Saturday against Toronto. He has had scoreless outings in three of his last five starts.I feel like I have been throwing the ball well all year, just putting it all together now, Nolasco said. I am throwing the ball well and just trying to run with it.JC Ramirez pitched the eighth before Andrew Bailey pitched the ninth for his fifth save.Mike Fiers (11-8) allowed two runs and four hits with a season-high nine strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. The right-hander retired 13 straight at one point. Fiers had his second straight strong outing after throwing six scoreless innings Saturday in Seattle.Jose Altuve had three hits for Houston, which grounded into three double plays.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (left forearm tightness) played catch and will throw some bullpens in the coming week. Hes symptom free, but we are going to obviously be very conservative where his treatment is now to make sure that this doesnt re-occur or turn into anything bigger, Scioscia said. Right now he feels great.PUJOLS MOVING UP THE CHARTSPujols two RBI broke a tie with Frank Robinson for 20th on the career list. His 116 RBI this season are his most since driving in 118 in 2010. The home run was Pujols 53rd against the Astros.UP NEXTAngels: RHP Alex Meyer (1-3, 5.63) will make his fifth start of the season and fourth for the Angels on Friday. Meyer earned his first career win in his last start Sunday, tossing five shutout innings against Toronto.Astros: RHP Doug Fister (12-12, 4.45) will make his 31st start of the season Friday, looking to snap a four-game losing streak. Fister allowed seven runs in less than four innings Sunday at Seattle. Mark Messier Jersey . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. Brian Ferlin Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. http://www.authentichockeyshopoilers.com/Drake-Caggiula-Jersey/ . Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University. Most recently he was the schools assistant football coach. Laurent Brossoit Jersey . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. Leon Draisaitl Jersey . -- Nathan Pancel scored twice as the Sudbury Wolves defeated the North Bay Battalion 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. RIO DE JANEIRO -- The health of Usain Bolt has been a question as the showman enters his final Olympics nursing a sore hamstring.His parents paid him a brief visit in the athletes village and insisted Friday hes ready to run and defend his gold medals.Wellesley and Jennifer Bolt both inquired about their sons health in their Thursday night visit with the sprinter. Bolt pulled out of his national championships last month because of the hamstring injury, but has insisted hes fine to compete in Brazil.He said `Mom, if I wasnt ready, I wouldnt be here because Im not into the losing thing. Im ready, said Jennifer Bolt.Bolt is trying to win the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay -- just like the last two Olympics -- to close his career with nine gold medals. The 100-meter final is Sunday and Bolt races in his first heat the day before.The Bolts spoke to a small group of reporters during a news conference, giving anecdotes from Bolts childhood and discussing his rise into a global superstar.Although he was born roughly 10 days past his due date -- the only time in his life he was slow, she said -- hes been fast ever since. She recognized he might be special just three weeks after his birth when he nearly fell off a bed and she noticed him trying to push himself up.I thought `What kind of a child is this? Three weeks old and hes pushing! she said.He was off and running from there, just like both of his parents. He once had to sprint home from school to collect his forgotten lunch and by 10, he could beat his mother in a race. Two years later, they knew for certain they had an athlete on their hands.At the age of 12, being in primary school, he started to compete in school sports and he was always on top and he was always beating his classmates, she recalled. From then, we noticed he would be a great athlete.He may have inherited his speed from his parents -- and father Wellesley took credit Friday for Bolts dance moves -- but the sprinter is a far bigger entertainer. The Bolts were soft-spoken and almost shy, although they said they appreciated the opportunity to tell reporters about their son.They still live in the same modest one-story home in Trelawney, Jamaica, and wouldnt dream of mooving anywhere else.dddddddddddd Moving would require making new friends and leaving behind what they know. Besides, life in Trelawney has improved significantly since Bolts first gold medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Since their son became a star, Trelawney now has running water, a paved road, refurbished clinics, health centers and schools and a new playground for kids.Wellesley still reports for work at the village shop, where he sells as much as he gives away.Its something to occupy my time so I dont get lazy, he said. As parents, we are proud of him, but we dont think it is fair of us to be acting over the head of the rest of the community. So I operate the shop mainly to give away what we have.They also enjoy Trelawney because Bolt can move freely through the community. Although he draws a crowd everywhere he goes, they said their son is happy at home. Once hes retired, they look forward to the crowds letting him be.He will be able to move around as he wants, Jennifer said. People always want to get close to him, not to hurt him, but just get close to him.She said she has seen no change in her son as his stardom grows. From his debut in the 2002 junior world championships, Jennifer insisted Bolt is still the good child who listens to his parents.The one thing that did grow, though, was Bolts love of the spotlight. Although Wellesley characterized him as playful at home, it wasnt until Bolt took the world stage in Beijing that he realized how much entertainment he could give a crowd.In Beijing, he started doing all these things and realized people really liked it, Wellesley said. Thats when he became an entertainer.Bolt, who turns 30 on Aug. 21, has been adamant these will be his final Olympics. His parents believe him and think hes determined to go out a winner. When hes through competing, they know exactly what they want him to do.I would like him to be an ambassador to track and field because he brings fun to the sport, Jennifer said. After he leaves, you dont know who will take over his role. Without him, it would be really boring.
