Wolf pitched well, giving up 8 hits, 2 BB and 7 K – he stranded every runner, partly getting lucky because he got the pitcher for the 3rd out twice. But he had at least 1 MOB in every inning he pitched and he got out of a men on second and third, 1 out, without giving up a run.
Their pitcher, Ramon Ramirez gave up 4 hits and 3 BB, but unfortunately for him, one of those hits was a fat changeup to Lance Berkman who hit it 400′ to the left center wall by the second arch. And that was all the Astros needed. He got pulled after 5 for a PH, even though he probably could have thrown another inning. He was sharp, had a nice change and a decent FB, and after the first inning, he only gave up 2 singles and a walk.
The play of the game, though (besides Berkman’s first homer in 2 weeks) was Jay Bruce robbing poor Wiggy of a 2 run homer. Wiggy is slumping as badly as Berkman and Erstad.
Tomorrow, it’s Roy vs Johnny Cueto, against whom the Astros have won all 3 games.
And you know how Roy does vs the Reds…
