Game Hero, 68 - 60

Andy Pettitte
  • 8.0 IP, 1 ER, 7 K, 1 BB
  • Thirteenth consecutive quality start
  • 72 Game Score is 6th this year 70 +
  • 93 pitches is fewest in a win since July 6 vs. San Diego

The way his hitters wasted opportunities in the first and second, Pettitte probably had a pretty good idea he had to pitch a gem to win. And then he went out and did just that, without allowing Saenz' extremely fortunate shot to get him down.

Marlins, Mets, and Phillies all win, however, so all the Astros do with this thrilling (thanks, Brad!) victory is keep pace, meaning Roy will have to hold serve tomorrow if we hope to gain ground on the Phillies this weekend.
