"Killer B's" Present as Houston Astros Beat San Diego Padres 7-2

Richard ZowieCorrespondent IJuly 3, 2009

"Killer B's" were present at the game between the Houston Astros and the San Diego Padres and, believe it or not, it had nothing to do with Jeff Bagwell or Craig Biggio.

It should be noted, though, that Geoff Blum hit a home run for the Astros and Lance Berkman added a double.

Ok, so it was actually a swarm of bees, the honey-loving flying insects. Their buzz was probably worse than their sting, and after they were removed the game resumed.

The result: Houston 7, San Diego 2.

Houston took 3-of-4 games in this series, startling since Houston long has struggled in San Diego.

At 38-39, Houston is one game under .500 in what's becoming, once again, the N.L. "Comedy" Central.

Wandy Rodriguez must've solved the pitch tipping problem as he went seven innings, allowing one run, two walks and five strikeouts.

Tonight, it's a late west coast game as Houston travels to AT&T Park to take on the San Francisco Giants.
