The Astros (6-11) finally had their offense show up yesterday as they scored 4 runs in the first inning. If only the Rockies (8-8) hadn’t already scored 6 in the top of the first.
Chris Sampson (0-2) couldn’t make it out of the first inning. He allowed 6 runs, all of them earned. It was all downhill from there, as it usually is when you have to go to the bullpen in the first.
Franklin Morales (1-1) got the win for the Rockies, although he wasn’t too sharp either. When a total of 10 runs are scored in the first, you know you’re not in for a pitchers duel.
The Astros turn to Wandy Rodriguez to end their two-game losing streak and hopefully start some winning today. Gametime is 7:05pm EDT.
