'77 Astros split another doubleheader

We just can't put it together twice in a row. The '77 Astros split the doubleheader with the Dodgers:

Game 1
Astros 2
Dodgers 1

Joe Niekro, whaddya know? Cruz with a double, triple and single to beat Sutton for the first time.

Game 2
Astros 2
Dodgers 7

Dan Larson isn’t that good. Three solo Dodger taters in the first three innings do him in, and Pentz and Dixon add fuel to the L.A. brush fire.

Record: 11-15
GB: 7

It doesn't help that the freaking Pirates have now won 13 in a row...
