Tejada sets record, Bourn goes against the grain

In this morning's Chronicle Notes column, we see the following:

-Tejada's 198 hits tie him with Derek Bell for second all-time in Astros history.

In case you're wondering, here are the top 10 hits seasons for the franchise:
1. Biggio, 210, 1998
2. Bell, 198, 1998
Tejada, 198, 2009
4. Cabell, 195, 1978
5. Berkman, 191, 2001
Biggio, 191, 1997
7. Lee, 190, 2007
8. Cruz, 189, 1983
9. Biggio, 188, 1999
10. Cruz, 187, 1984

Michael Bourn knew better than to get thrown out at third base in Friday's game, and would have scored on Tejada's single later in the inning.

“I'm aggressive at times. I pick and choose my spots...If you're safe, you're good. If you're not, you hear about it.”
