Mike Hampton Homers, Wins As Astros Muzzle Mets
Buy yourself a chorizo breakfast taco if you guessed Mike Hampton.
Yep, the pitcher who's an excellent hitter (.313) on the season. This was his 16th career homer.
The two-run homer helped, since Hampton picked up the win in 5.2 shaky innings as Houston defeated the Mets 5-4.
Ironically, Hampton's last home run came in 2005 while pitching for the Atlanta Braves. The victim of that home run? The Astros.
Hampton's line: 5.2 innings, eight hits, four earned runs, four walks, seven strikeouts and a home run allowed.
What helped Houston, no doubt, was the bullpen: Four relievers combined for 3.1 innings of five hits and no runs. No walks and no strikouts.
Houston's now 50-46 on the season. They're 1.5 games behind St. Louis
