Recap for G65 - Astros at Twins

So it's not often you see a pitcher throw a complete game, and lose. Which is exactly what happened tonight in Minnesota. Roy threw 126 pitches in a 5-2 loss, where the Twins bunted their way all over the place - three sac bunts and a squeeze.

The Astros got five hits on the night - two from Darin Erstad (!), one each from Pudge and Matsui and one long bomb from Keppinger. Bourn provided the other run on a sac fly that scored Matsui.

And in a recurring theme, the Astros managed to get caught stealing twice: Erstad and Bourn.

Man of the Match: Michael Bourn. 0x1, but with a sac fly and two walks.

Goat of the Game: Miguel Tejada. 0x4 with 3Ks.
