Wandy keeps composure, Astros take series: Brewers 0 — Astros 2

New, 4 comments

Mmmmmmm....series victories I remember you.

  • Wandy Rodriguez continued to do that maturation thing.  Although his command was not with him today, he stayed poised and was able to battle through his 7IP, 5H, 3K, 2BB on 116 pitches.  To make up for his less than dominant outing, Wandy and the defense converted 10GB and 12 FB.
  • Wandy also managed to do something that Miguel Tejada couldn't do: Collect a hit.
  • Geoff Blum and Jason Michaels both continued their race to raise their SLG/ISO with a home run and double respectively.
  • Adding to the old guys doing something, Darin Erstad collected a double in his three at bats.
  • Jose Valverde didn't want to let anyone go away from the game thinking that they didn't get their money's worth and converted the shakiest, scariest, most stressful 1.1IP save I can recall.  Jose will need to remember to tip home plate umpire Larry Vanover for the Ryan Braun caught looking call.
