I had really hoped I could have had a sweep with games 108-110 but I'll take two out of three for the Astros History post.

In this one the Astros lost to the Brewers by five runs. Wesley Wright was the losing pitcher. Unlike the previous two games the Astros didn't hit a homerun. Despite that Michael Bourn, Jeff Keppinger, Hunter Pence and Carlos Lee all had multiple hits in the game.

On the pitching side Wesley Wright started the game (remember when the Astros tried him as a starter) and went 2.1 innings allowing seven runs on five hits and four walks, while striking out one batter. Nelson Figuerora, Gustavo Chacin, Tim Byrdak, Jeff Fulchino and Wilton Lopez all followed Wright with varying degrees of success.

With the loss the Astros dropped to 47-63, which was good enough for fourth in the division behind the Brewers who were 53-59. One interesting note is that Cecil Cooper was the manager of the two wins in the previous two Astros History and Brad Mills was the manager of the loss for today's Astros History.
