In game 109 of the 2009 season the Astros took on the Milwaukee Brewers in Houston.

The Astros won the game 6-3. Bud Norris was the winning pitcher with Jose Valrvede closing our the game for the Astros 54th victory. At 54-55 the Astros were third in the division tied with non other than the Brewers.

The Astros used a total of five pitchers in the game and I've got a question for those of you that actually read these Astros History posts. Would you take Chris Sampson, Tim Byrdak, Jeff Fulchino and Jose Valverde over the current bullpen?

Offensively, Sean's favorite player Jason "The Wrestler" Michaels and Miguel "Not My Right Age" Tejada each hit homeruns. Both Geoff Blum and Carlos Lee had two hits each and Darin Erstad had a hit and one of the two walks.

Ivan Rodriguez was, at least to me, surprisingly still on the team. I don't really remember him playing for the team too much, but he did have 344 plate appearances with the Astros and was moved during the August waiver trade period. In return the Astros received Matt Nevarez and Jose Vallejo.
