Pretty in pink
It wasn’t an explosive rout, just like last night. But it was good enough, and I can’t agree more with what the Houston Chronicle says today on its Website: this was a good team effort, enough for ensuring an Astros win over the Diamondbacks 5-2.
Wandy Rodriguez gets a win after a long drought, tossing five solid innings; the bullpen performed as expected, and the offense came in baby steps: Carlos Lee going 2-for-3 with a RBI, Craig Biggio batting 2-for-4. Adam Everett and Brad Ausmus had run-scoring doubles. Hunter Pence did an amazing catch.
Baseball is a team sport which excels on the sum of individualities. That’s exactly what the Astros did today. Now, they have won 8 of their last 12, and we can say something we haven’t said in quite a while: they won consecutive series.
