Astros Game 4: Astros 2, Padres 3



The Astros (1-3) proved themselves unable to split the series with the Padres (3-1).

Shawn Chacon actually pitched decently as a started, despite the fact that in his career he’s been a much better reliever than a starter, and he’s only been an average reliever. He left with the game tied, leaving it to the Astros’ bullpen and Oscar Villarreal (0-1) to lose. For the Padres, Enrique Gonzalez (1-0) got a blown save and a win, with Trevor Hoffman picking up his 2nd save on the young season.

The Astros moved on to Chicago where Chris Sampson would take on Rich Hill.
