W: Park (4-2) L: Wright (3-3) S: Saito (13)


The Astros played hard but fell to the Dodgers thanks to the slugging of a former Astro.

No, it wasn’t that one, that one, or even that one. It was Jeff Kent who provided the fireworks in the top of the 11th when he hit a solo home run off of Wesley Wright.

Wandy Rodriguez struggled mightily with his control, having no luck either curving or breaking his balls. Rodriguez gave up 5 runs in 5 innings.

Houston had plenty of offense for a change, with Ty Wiggington leading the charge. But the bullpen couldn’t keep LA off the board. If only the Astros still had Shawn Chacon. His 5 ERA surely would have helped matters.
