Houston Game 15: Roy Gets a Win



For those Astros (6-9) fans who were teetering on the ledge because of their team’s poor start, last night’s game should offer some solace. Roy Oswalt (1-3) didn’t suck!

RoyO was pretty good, actually, leading his team to a 2-1 win over the Phillies (7-8) and Kyle Kendrick (1-2).

Interestingly, it wasn’t the waste of roster space struggling Jose Valverde brought on to get the save. I think he has his nose in the corner after royally blowing a save earlier this week. No, it was Doug Brocail (S 1). It’ll be interesting to see how long Valverde’s after-school suspension lasts.

The two teams finish their series today with Brandon Backe going against Brett Myers.
