This Day In Astros History: July 6, 1995

On this day, 16 years ago, the Astros won an extra-inning affair with the San Diego Padres at the Astrodome.

Shane Reynolds struck out 12 in eight innings of work, giving up five hits and four runs (none earned) while walking one. It was one of 25 games in team history where a starter has struck out at least 12 while walking one or less. The leader in that category was Randy Johnson, who struck out 16 and walked none on August 28, 1998. Brett Myers equaled the feat last season, striking out 12 and walking one on July 27.

Todd Jones got the victory for Houston, pitching the final three innings, allowing one hit and no walks while striking out four. It ran his record to 5-1 that season, though he went 1-4 the rest of the way in 1995.

Jones was in line for the win after Houston finally broke through in the 12th inning. Jeff Bagwell led off the bottom of the 12th with a line drive single to left center. Pinch hitter John Cangelosi bunted Bagwell over to second and, after Tony Eusebio was hit by a pitch, they both moved up a base when a passed ball got by Padres catcher Brian Johnson. Milt Thompson was intentionally walked to load the bases before catcher Jerry Goff lined out to center field, giving Bagwell a chance to score from third and end the game.
