HOUSTON (AP) - Jerome Williams won a third straight start for the first time since April 2004, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Houston 2-1 Sunday to send the Astros to their 98th loss of the season.

Houston, a big league-worst 51-98, is on the verge of becoming the first major league team to reach triple figures in losses in three consecutive seasons since Kansas City from 2004-06. The Astros were 56-106 in 2011 and dropped to 55-107 last year, their final season in the National League.

Josh Hamilton had an RBI triple in the first off Paul Clemens (4-5), a drive of the glove of center fielder Brandon Barnes as he went up Tal's Hill. Mike Trout had reached with his AL-leading 100th walk.

Andrew Romine hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth after singles by Erick Aybar and Hank Conger.
