Game Hero, 27 - 37

New, 9 comments
Brad Ausmus
  • 3 for 5, 1 run, 4 RBI
  • Game-winning hit in 11th
  • First homer since August 5, 2006
  • First 4-RBI game for an Astro since Pence on 5/5

It wasn't his best game ever, but he is a unanimous choice for Game Hero, and how often can you say that?

Ausmus came into Tuesday's game with a personal-best .318 career average against the A's, and somehow managed to improve it. He also managed as many RBI on the 12th of June as he had managed in all of May, or in all of April.

And he's got 7 RBI in his last five games.

Can Carlos Lee say that?
