From the Office of the County Clerk - ST4: Astros v. Marlins

So the Astros have kinda-sorta won two in a row with a 5-3 win over the Marlins today.

*As the Astros look at different options for temporary C1, Humberto Quintero was 2x2 with 2RBI. Drew Locke had your other multi-hit game, going 2x2 (3B) with a run.

*Brett Wallace was 1x3 with a two-out, 2RBI hit.

*Jason Michaels (1x2), Chris Johnson (0x2), and Koby Clemens (0x1) all drew walks, while Clemens and Bill Hall provided the only strikeouts on the day. Walking more than you strikeout, as a team = good.

*Somehow Michael Bourn grounded into two double plays. Either the Marlins are all on speed, or Bourn is lolly-gagging. There is no in between, no other possibilities.

*Nelson Figueroa was relatively sharp with 2IP, 2H/0ER, 0K:1BB. Aneury Rodriguez (who is legally required to refer to as "Rule 5 pick Aneury Rodriguez") threw 2IP, 3H/1ER, 1K:1BB.

*Enerio Del Rosario had your only perfect outing of the day. Wesley Wright allowed two hits and a walk, and Henry Villar allowed a triple to Whatshisname Bonifacio, and a sac to allow the Marlins to cut the score to its final margin.

Man of the Match: Humberto Quintero! Step up and claim your prize!

Goat of the Game: Michael Bourn. Though he was 1x4 with a run, those two GIDPs...
