From the Office of the County Clerk - G78: Astros @ Brewers

Myers got lit up and the Astros, despite scoring five runs, lost to the Brewers, 7-5.

*Myers' four home runs allowed was a career high.

*Three of the four homers were solo shots, as have been (now) 123 of the 189 HRs he's allowed.

*The first two homers came on the first pitch - the second two on the third pitch of the AB.

*The 7ER Myers allowed were a season high, and the highest since he allowed 10ER in 4IP on September 19, 2008 at Florida.

*Pedro Feliz was 2x4 with a solo homer. That's five hits in this series. It's the third time this season - and the first since April 24-25 - that Feliz has had back-to-back multi-hit games.

*Berkman was back in the lineup and in the #3-hole, responding with a 3x5, 2RBI night. It's Berkman's 5th 3-hit game of the season and his 8th 2+ RBI night.

*The Astros have scored 21 runs in the 9th inning in 13 instances. In seven games they've scored one run; two runs four times, three runs twice. Just FYI (since that what this is all about), the Astros haven't scored more than five runs in an inning, and they've scored the most runs (41) in the 1st inning.

*Bourn has a six game hit streak rolling, and is 12x28, with 3K:2BB, 4RBI in that span.

Pitch Count Hero: Jason Castro (1x3, BB) - 22 pitches in four PAs. (Bourn saw 23 pitches, but in 5 PAs)

Pitch Count Punk: Oswaldo Navarro (0x2, BB) - 13 pitches in three PAs.

Man of the Match: Michael Bourn - 2x4 with 2RBI, and a money catch in center to rob the guy every Astros fan loves to see walk back to the dugout: Jim Edmonds.

Goat of the Game: Hunter Pence - 0x5 (0x2 w/RISP).
