From the Office of the County Clerk - G21: Astros @ Brewers

That was emotional. Astros win in 10 innings, 6-5.

*The Astros' last extra-inning game was on September 15, 2010...against Milwaukee. The Brewers won that game, with Matt Lindstrom getting the loss.

*Brandon Lyon...Brandon, Brandon, Brandon. Gave up the game-tying run, left the bases loaded in the 9th. Then doubled in a run to put the Astros up 9-6.

*Lyon walked his first two batters of the season, and has allowed a 2+ baserunners in four of eight appearances.

*That was the first hit, and RBI, of Brandon Lyon's career. His OPS+ is now 700.

*Myers wasn't as sharp as usual, allowing 10H in 6.1IP. He gave up 10+ hits in three starts in 2010, and the Astros were 1-2 in those games.

*Myers' 36 Game Score was his lowest of the season.

*Humberto Quintero continues his strong start at the plate, going 2x5 with a run, double, and 2RBI. He also stole a base - the first SB of his career.

*Bill Hall was 3x4 with an intentional walk and an RBI. In his last five games, he's 6x17 with a triple.

*Brett Wallace went 2x4 with two doubles, giving him a five-game hitting streak, and four multi-hit games in his last five starts.

*Man of the Match: Quintero, Quintero!

*Goat of the Game: It's Easter. No Goat.
