6 - 3, 3.04 4 - 2, 3.66

Well, if there's one good thing to take out of last nights game, it's that we at least kept the game close. Unfortunately, keeping a game close doesn't result in wins. Last night the 'Stros dropped their 7th straight game and fall to 7 games under .500 at 21 - 28 and 5th place in the division. The Diamondbacks have pummeled us for 27 runs over the last 3 games while we've scored a pathetic 8(which actually raises our runs for over the last week). Well, at least we get to go hom eafter tonight and face a team that is even worse than us(at least standings wise) in the NL Centrals worst Cincinatti Reds.
