Nationals 3, Astros 4: The Return of El Caballo



The Astros (18-16) continued their march past .500, now at two games over thanks to a walk-off RBI single from Carlos Lee. Way to start earning that paycheck, Caballo. By the looks of this calendar, it appears you’re only a month late, but better late than never.

Joel Hanrahan (0-2) gave up the hit to Lee, losing the game for the Nationals (14-20). Jose Valverde (4-1) got the win.

The two play again tonight at 8:05pm EDT. The Nationals send John Lannan, and the Astros counter with Brandon Backe.
