Astros’ pitches were flying like–well, rockets–on Wednesday night…and the usual suspects were doing the launching:
- Prince Fielder blasted his 41st in the 1st…a 3-run shot
- Ryan Braun blasted his 28th in the 2nd…a 3-run shot
- Corey Hart got his 20th in the 4th…a 3-run shot
- Geoff Jenkins got his 20th, too, also in the 4th…a solo shot
- Billy Hall notched his 13th…a solo shot in the 6th
Yovani Gallardo took control on the mound as well…0 ER in 7 IP to get the win and up his mark to 7-4, 4.27.
The Cubs won as well, so the Crew is still a ½ game back.
On deck: the Reds and Bronson Arroyo (7-14, 4.43) after a day off to savor a great homestand. Dave Bush (11-9, 4.83) tries to keep things going for the Crew.
