SBNation Coverage

This was a pretty boring game for a while. Bud Norris held the Crew to three hits and three walks (all to Felipe Lopez) and one run in five innings. Corey Hart drove in that run after Lopez advanced two bases on a wild pitch.

Chris Narveson started the game for the Crew in place of Manny Parra and his still-stiff neck and pitched very well, holding the Astros to one run (a Lance Berkman homer) in five innings while striking out three. The bullpen took over in the sixth with Carlos Villanueva giving up a run and giving Houston the lead. Chris Smith was actually put in a close game and worked around a hit and a JJ Hardy error to hold the Astros scoreless. Felipe Lopez evened the score in the seventh by driving in JJ Hardy

David Weathers inherited a 2-2 tie and pitched a 1-2-3 eighth. With one down in the bottom of the inning Prince Fielder doubled and scored the go-ahead run on Casey McGehee’s RBI single. That paved the way for Hells Bells and Trevor Hoffman’s 34th save.
