One of those games where you would have taken some of these runs last night but a great win for Houston.
Wandy Rodriguez pitched another great game getting his first win of the season.
Geoff Blum led the squad today with 3 RBI.
Bourn 1-5, 1 H, 1 R, 3 SO, 4 LOB, SB
Tejada 1-4, 2 R, SB
Berkman 0-4, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 LOB (Berkman has as many strike outs this season as he does walks. 11)
Lee 3-3, 3 Hits, 1 RBI, 2 R, BB
Pence 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 K, 4 LOB, SB
Blum 3-4, 3 RBI, 1 R,
Rodriguez, 2-4, 2 RBI,
Smith 0-4, 2 K (not looking good for Jason)
Erstad 1-1 (first hit of the season and remains as the only bench player not to have a start)
Great game out of the offense today, now if they could only put up some runs with some consistency.
7 IP, 2 H (that's right, 2 hits), 2 BB, 10 K (ties a career high for Wandy, who got 10 K's during a previous contest against the Reds)
Sampson 1IP, 1 BB
0 earned for Houston pitchers tonight.
Good news: Wandy freaking Rodriguez is pitching like the ace of the staff right now. That's 3 solid starts for the little lefty who got his first win tonight.
Houston scored 7 runs tonight also a good sign. Carlos Lee had a great game tonight but the offensive mvp goes to Blummer who got his first RBI of the season tonight and added 2 more to give him 3 on the day.
Bad News: Houston stranded 9 runners on base.
Something has to be wrong with Lance Berkman. He hasn't done anything from the left side this year and he already has 11 K's.
Wandy Rodriguez W (1-1)
Tomorrow will have Felipe Paulino facing Edinson Volquez at 1:05 Central.
