From the Office of the County Clerk - ST3b: Astros v. Tigers

Well, well. Collect your $500,000 if you bet a dollar on Oswaldo Navarro getting the first homer of the Spring. The Astros defeat the Tigers 6-3 for the first Grapefruit League win.

*Navarro's homer was a three-run, two out shot in the 8th inning that made the game 6-1.

*T.J. Steele was 2x4 (2R), Hunter Pence was 2x3 (RBI), and Tommy Manzella was 2x3 for the multi-hit games.

*Chris Johnson was 0x3 with a K, and others who may make the 25-Man Roster include Angel Sanchez (1x4, R, RBI).

*Austin Wates was 0x0 with a sacrifice. Drew Locke was 0x3 with a BB, SB, R.

*J.A. Happ threw 2IP, 1H/0ER, 1K. Ross Wolf threw 2IP, 1H/0ER, and David Carpenter (picked up in the Pedro Feliz trade with STL - ha ha), threw two perfect innings.

*Wilton Lopez also threw a perfect inning with a K. Sergio Escalona had another rough outing with 1IP, 2H/1ER, 0K:1BB. Jorge De Leon gave up 1H/2ER, 1K:1BB, WP in the 9th inning.
