Good Week for the 'Stros
Okay, I really hope that all of you are bowing to the magnificence that is one Hunter Pence. Do I like this kid? Well, you should have figured the answer to that by now. I hope that you guys are liking him just as much.
The Astos beat the Giants last night 2-1. The winning run came off a fourth inning Hunter Pence home run. This homer was a monster of a shot over the choo-choo train.
I love baseball games like last night’s. There was excellent pitching from Chris Sampson and the Giants’ Noah Lowry – Lowry pitched the entire game for the Giants. And the Astros bullpen kept the Giants shut down after Sampson left the game.
There’s not really much else to note.
Chris Sampson got the win, and he became a father on Tuesday night. The Astros record is now 20-19.
Tonight’s game matches Roy Oswalt against the new Giant wunderkind, Tim Lincicum. This could be a really fun one. -- John Royal
