My favorite Astros pitching stat of the night was the three inning-ending double plays Oswalt rolled up on Cueto, Phillips and pinch-hitter Darnell McDonald in the 7th to end the inning still tied at 1-1.
So Berkman raised his average with a 6th inning bomb to left field. Bourn extended his hitting streak to nine games. Tejada apparently just couldn't handle the Brewers' pitching staff and went off for a 3x4 night. Then, then, then! in the 9th inning. Lee leads off with a single to right, Tejada did what he does and pulled the ball for a single to left. Jason Smith got on base - after running for Lee - and Hunter Pence came through with The Big Hit and a two-RBI double to deep right. Blum's sac fly got Pence in, and there's your four runs.
Man of the Match:
Hunter Pence. I wanted to give it to Roy, and Lance, but Pence came through with a big hit at a big time.
Goat of the Game:
It's kind of nice to not be able to find a Goat. We'll give it to Pudge, as he was the only Astro to not get on base.
