ANAHEIM, Calif. Aaron Gordon Jersey . -- Tyler Skaggs final start wasnt the one he wanted, though he was happy to get in some healthy reps.Instead, Collin McHugh shined on the mound by pitching three-hit ball over 7 2/3 innings to help the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-0 on Saturday night.Skaggs (3-4) was removed after 1 2/3 innings, leaving the game with two on and two out and adhering to his strict 45-pitch limit. Skaggs returned after missing time with a mild left pronator flexor strain and made his 10th start since having Tommy John surgery. He wanted to face live hitters once more before shutting it down for the year.This season has had its ups and downs, like everybody said it would, Skaggs said. Nobody told me it was going to be this hard of a road coming back. But my arm feels great, so Im happy about that.Skaggs will skip the instructional league in an effort to preserve his elbow.All his pitches looked sharp and he came out of it feeling great, so know hes healthy and thats important, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. I dont think he has anything else that hes going need to prove or work on down there right now.Jose Altuve reached base three times and scored once, Jake Marisnick went 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI and Evan Gattis drove in two runs.McHugh (13-10) was perfect through 4 2/3 innings until Andrelton Simmons singled through the right side. In his longest start since May 30, McHugh walked one and struck out five to win his sixth decision in his last eight starts. McHugh has dominated Los Angeles, winning eight straight dating to the 2014 season.It caps a really sensational September for him where he really put up a lot of good games, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.McHugh has won 13 consecutive September/October starts, the longest such streak for any major league pitcher.If thats going to be my last start, then Ill take it, McHugh said. I always pride myself on being a finisher and being stronger down the stretch than at any point in time during the season.The Angels put two on with two out in the ninth, but Rafael Ortega stranded the runners with a flyball to center field before Ken Giles converted his 15th save.The Astros scored runs in the second, third and seventh innings. They chased Skaggs from the game after Marisnick singled to left to score Tyler White.I wasnt going out there with any goal, I was just going out there trying to feel good, Skaggs said. I didnt want to go out there and walk people, but overall my elbow felt great.Yuliesky Gurriel doubled to lead off the third and was moved over by Altuves fly ball to right field. Gattis grounder bounced high over Simmons head at shortstop for a single to score Gurriel. Altuve scored from first on Gattis single in the seventh to cap the scoring.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: RHP Jered Weaver will not make his final start of the season Sunday and will be replaced by RHP Jhoulys Chacin. Weaver left his last start against Oakland with lower-back tightness and determined that his progression isnt far enough along to risk making another start.UP NEXTAstros: RHP Brady Rodgers will make his first major league start. The Houston-area native has been scoreless in each of his last three outings -- three innings -- and is 0-0 with a 19.29 ERA.Angels: Chacin made his last start against Houston, taking a no-decision after giving up two unearned runs over four innings. Chacin is 4-6 as a starter this season. Jonathan Isaac Jersey . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. Dwight Howard Jersey . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. http:///...urnier-magic-jersey/ PULLMAN, Wash. -- Leaders of Washington State University met Thursday with Pullmans police chief to discuss recent incidents involving Cougar football players, with both sides saying the meeting was productive.Washington State President Kirk Schulz and Director of Athletics Bill Moos met with Chief Gary Jenkins in Schulzs office.The meeting came two days after football Coach Mike Leach suggested his players were being unfairly targeted by law enforcement.On Monday, police arrested one Washington State player on suspicion of assault, and recommended that assault charges be filed against another player in a separate incident.Police are also investigating a large fight earlier in the summer allegedly involving multiple unnamed football players and students.Moos said it was a chance for the three leaders to discuss the recent incidents and gain a better understanding of processes and procedures.We certainly respect the task facing law enforcement and throughout my tenure as athletic director, have made every effort to fully cooperate with local authorities, Moos said. I am encouraged as we move forward that we will continue to have an open line of communication and allow the full legal process to play out to ensure fairness is given to all involved.Leach complained Tuesday night about three recent incidents that led to assault investigations by police. He ssaid hes concerned the only people being accused of crimes in the incidents are football players. Melvin Frazier Jersey. Jenkins denied Wednesday that his officers are picking on players, saying they treat everyone the same.Jenkins said Thursday that the meeting went well. I would describe our relationship beforehand as very good, and I dont see any change in that, he said.The parties discussed how police investigate cases and why some investigations take longer than others, Jenkins said.On Tuesday night, Leach read a prepared statement after practice in which he contended that police seemed to be focusing on his players. Comments to the media have distorted the facts and already condemned football players in the court of public opinion, he said.Many of the statements are incomplete or totally false, Leach said. Im going to do what I should have done in the first place, which is presume them innocent until proven guilty.Washington State students and staff dominate Pullman, a town of about 30,000 people. Students make up two-thirds of the population, Jenkins said.Leachs team has struggled this season, losing to Eastern Washington and Boise State in the first two games. On Monday, Leach lashed out at his players for not being tough enough.
