Your Houston Astros send Roy Oswalt to the hill against C.C. Sabathia at 12:05PM CST for the Astros 2nd to last game of the Grapefruit league season. The Astros are going to end up with a losing record after going 12-15-1 through the first 28 games.
The Astros had another good offensive performance against the Tigers yesterday scoring 6 runs in the first 3 innings, but the pitching couldn't hold up, yielding 10 runs to lose the game 10-9.
Sampson didn't do much to help his case after going just 3 1/3 innings and giving up 4 runs and left the game in the 4th after being drilled in the hip with a line drive off of the bat of Cabrera for the Tigers. Doesn't seem like it's going to have any lasting effects, just a deep bruise.
Berkman and Pence both had good days with Berkman going 2 -3 with 2 RBI's, a wak and a double and Pence going 2-4 with 3 runs scored and an RBI. Pence is hitting .403 on this spring season.
