The Astros handed Mr. Hand his first Major League win by scoring absolutely zero runs and managed to be no-hit by the Hand for 4 1/3 innings. Overall the Astros collected two hits and three walks against Hand who went 7 innings and lowered his ERA to 2.77. The only other hit was a Carlos Lee single in the top of the 9th against.
This was one of those games that you kept on in the background while you did something else. In fact I was working on article involving the Astros race to the number one pick in next years draft. There wasn't much excitement unless you were a Marlins fan. The most exciting play for the Astros was a pick off of Mike Stanton in the bottom of the 4th inning.
Enerio Del Rosario followed Happ with a scoreless 1.1 innings pitched with a strikeout, he did however manage to allow a hit and walk one. Mark "The Shark" Melancon had a perfect 8th striking out one and that was it for the pitching.
Offensively 6 men on base for the entire game isn't going to win you many games. While the meeting was nice it still doesn't change the fact that this team still has a lot of holes to fill.
