The scoop from stros.com:
Carlos Lee...er the 'Stros at the plate: “Michael Bourn opened the game with a triple and scored on Pudge Rodriguez’s base hit. Carlos Lee lifted a sacrifice fly to score Rodriguez, who had advanced to third on Darin Erstad’s double. Lee drove in another run in the third with a double. Jason Smith led off the fifth with a double and scored on a Rodriguez base hit. Lee knocked a two-run homer in the seventh.”
More of this, please. Thank you. Carlos could have won the game on his own with his four steaks.
'Stros on the bump: “Russ Ortiz, the projected fifth starter, allowed three runs—two earned—on five hits over six innings. ”
Alyson Footer gives the fifth spot to Ortiz, and I don’t think anyone else disagrees.
And the Houston Astros' Grapefruit League record is: *drum roll please*
