What didn't help most: The two early runs? or the three late ones? Astros lose at San Diego, 6-3.
*The loss drops the Astros to 12-19 on the road (and that's even after the four game win streak), otherwise known as the Worst Road Record in the NL.
*Aneury Rodriguez allowed 5H/3ER, 2K:3BB in 6IP for his 2nd quality start in three games. He got the loss, though, dropping him to 0-3.
*Aneury also threw 100 pitches in an outing for the first time this season, beating his previous high of 96 against the Dodgers on May 25.
*Enerio Del Rosario allowed 2H/3R (2ER), 2K:1BB in 1.2IP. It was the first time he had allowed a run since April 27 - a span of 13 appearances. Del Rosario has allowed 12 runs (10 earned), which all have come in four outings.
*The Astros got eight hits, and were 1x9 w/RISP.
*Two hits came courtesy of Michael Bourn, who had two doubles, and the lone hit w/RISP. It's his first multi-XBH game since going 2x4 with two doubles against Florida on April 10.
*Clint Barmes hit his 3rd homer of the season, and is hitting .290 over the course of the last seven days.
*Hunter Pence was 1x4, extending his hitting streak to 16 games, in which he's hitting .406/.433/.625 - with a .460 BABIP - coming into last night.
*Chris Johnson was put in the #5 spot, and went 0x3. In eight games at #5, Johnson is 6x34.
*Man of the Match: Michael Bourn
*Goat of the Game: Going with J.R. Towles, who's managed to get a Catcher's Interference in two straight games.
