The Astros scored three runs - one in the 7th and one in the 8th - to top the Blue Jays 3-2 with homers by Santangelo and Michaels. Two hits from Pence, and one each from Matsui, Erstad, Lee, Tejada, Santangelo, Michaels, Blum and Abercrombie rounded out the hits. Erstad's and Matsui's hits were doubles. Pitching lines:
Moehler: 6IP, 7H, 2ER
Arias: 2IP, 1H, 1K
Geary: 1IP, 1K
Erstad got the start at 1st base in an effort to get him some ABs this week, but I'm curious if Jason Smith just got a leg up on the IF5 race because of the uncertainty of the severity of Lance's shoulder/biceps injury. We'll hear more about it this week.
