VICTORIA -- Matt Marshall fired 7-under 63 Thursday to take the first round lead at the Times Colonist Island Savings Open, the first event of the inaugural PGA Tour Canada season. Black Puma Basket Heart . Marshall, a fourth-year Tour veteran, received a putting tip from his father that helped him navigate the front nine in just 29 strokes. "What really seems to help me go low is my putter. I got a lesson from my dad last night and all of a sudden it started clicking," Marshall said. "The greens here are the best Ive ever seen in an afternoon round." Marshall also feels healthy after overcoming nagging inflammation in his left shoulder that had been bothering him since last summer. "I really didnt think about a score," he said. "I was injured most of the winter and this is really my first tournament, so I didnt have many expectations. "I went out and played and all of a sudden putts started going in, and before I knew it I was about 7-under." Joe Panzeri was one stroke behind Marshall after opening at 6-under 64. "I think playing the course and the event the last couple of years really helps," Panzeri said. "Feeling comfortable out here is really important." Riley Wheeldon of Comox, B.C., was the top Canadian, tied for third at 5-under 65. The tours leading money winner at seasons end will be fully exempt on the Web.com Tour for 2014, with the next four players receiving highly placed status. "The incentive on this Tour is a lot bigger and I think everyones really motivated," Wheeldon said. Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, B.C., opened at 3-under 67, while Torontos Albin Choi carded 2-under 68 in his first ever professional round. Matt Makinson of Coquitlam, B.C., had the first hole-in-one in PGA Tour Canada history, holing an eight iron on the 171-yard 17th hole. Vans Old Skool Sale .

HOUSTON -- Evan Gattis doesnt know why he hits better when he catches compared to when hes the designated hitter.Ive seen the stats and heard its kind of a big split, but I just want to pretend like Im catching when Im not, Gattis said.He was catching Saturday night, and his bat came alive.Gattis had two home runs and four RBI in his return to the lineup, Collin McHugh threw six strong innings and the Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-2.Gattis sat Friday with a bruised right hand after being hit by a pitch Wednesday. He came back Saturday and launched a three-run homer into the Crawford Boxes in left field in the second inning and added a solo shot off the facade in left-center in the fourth to give Houston a 5-0 lead.Glad I got a good pitch to hit, Gattis said. The first one I took I thought I took it well. It was borderline ball/strike away. Just really let the ball travel a little bit today as best I could.It was his sixth career multihomer game and first since hitting a pair Aug. 26, 2015, against the Yankees.For his career, Gattis entered hitting .260 with a .512 slugging percentage as a catcher, compared to .230 with a .422 slugging percentage when hes the DH. Hes also hit 38 homers in 153 games as a catcher, compared to 31 homers in 187 games as DH.Im sure someone smarter than me can figure it out, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. I dont know if its actually true in the numbers. It feels like it and in all seriousness I think its the result of keeping him occupied, keeping his mind occupied, keeping his mind in the game.Carlos Correa had a solo home run to right in the fifth.McHugh (7-6) allowed two runs on six hits with six strikeouts in six innings. He continued his string of solid outings, allowing two runs or fewer for the sixth time in his last seven starts.I probably could have made some better pitches in better situations, McHugh said. But I think for the stuff we had Gatty did a really good job of guiding me througgh a couple of spots where I just wasnt feeling it. Puma Basket Heart Ireland. Houston has won 10 straight against the Angels. It tacked on a run in the third when Jered Weaver (8-8) hit Preston Tucker with the bases loaded, scoring George Springer.

The right-hander has struggled against Houston this season, allowing 16 runs in 15 1/3 innings.I just think that obviously, I dont have the same (stuff) that I used to have is first and foremost, Weaver said. They have become a pretty patient team. Not as free swinging. They make you work for it. I had to work my (butt) off there in the second and third.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: C Jason Castro was out of the lineup Saturday after being hit on the back of his right hand on a foul tip in the ninth inning Friday.
