Houston Astros, Tie Marlins 10-10 in 10

One thing that can be pretty evident in after going through most of spring training for the Astros is that we can score some runs... but unfortunately... we give up a bunch as well. 

The Astros started off good today scoring 7 runs in the first two innings, but then the pitching (starting with Chacon) slowly gave it away.  Chacon went 5 innings today, but gave up 6 runs.  Not really what we were looking for from who looks to be our 4th starter.  Wright (who had been terrific in his last few outings), earned a blown save by giving up 2 runs in the 9th inning to send the game into extra innings. 

Our leadoff man, Michael Bourn went 0-6 today with a strike out lowering his spring average to .258.  Jose Cruz continued his good spring with a 2-5 day and his 3rd home run of the season.

Next up, the Astros go up against the Tigers at 5:05PM CST tomorrow, sending Chris Sampson to the hill against Justin Verlander.  This looks like Sampson's last chance to earn that 5th starters spot. 

Astros spring record is 12-14-1
