ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Carlos Correa hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and the Houston Astros beat Tim Lincecum and the Los Angeles Angels 7-1 on Tuesday night for their ninth win in 10 games.

Correa went 3 for 4 and matched his career high with four RBIs 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 rivalry's history.

Lincecum (1-2) couldn't get through the fifth inning in his third start for the Angels, yielding seven hits, four walks and five runs. It was his second straight bumpy outing after a promising debut.

Scott Feldman (5-3) yielded three hits in five innings to win his first start since April 24 for the Astros.
