Astros lose to Diamondbacks 3 - 4


As you would expect Brett Myers went six innings again, but just. He struggled a bit with the Diamondbacks young offense allowing seven hits, three walks and three earned runs, while striking out four. He was able to get out of the first inning after allowing a run with runners on second and third and no outs, limiting the damage.

His mound opponent Daniel Hudson also went six innings allowing only two runs. Hudson was in line for the win until a Brian Bogusevic, who hit a ground rule double to the pool, was driven in by a Angel Sanchez double play in the top of the seventh inning to tie the score at three.

Fernando Abad had been brought in for the bottom of the seventh inning and was pulled after getting two out's while allowing a walk in between, for Wilton Lopez. Going back to Evan's article on Thursday you have to wonder if this was a smart move. Wallace made a nice snag on a ball hit down the right field line to get pinch hitter Kelly Johnson at first to end the seventh inning.

The Diamondbacks weren't done, though. With Wilton Lopez on the mound for the eighth inning Ryan Roberts leadoff with a double, after Gerardo Parra ground out moved Roberts to third, Augie Ojeda had a sacrifice fly to center field to score Roberts. Allowing the Diamondbacks to take the lead. Juan Guiterrez came in to shut the door and got Sanchez to fly out to Chris Young, after a Michael Bourn infield single.

With the Wilton Lopez move in mind and a 20/20 hindsight.
