Just shy of finishing the second inning, Houston Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt exited last night's game against the Chicago Baby Bears with a strained lower back. One has to wonder if his big bulldozer had anything to do with it.

Not to worry: despite a shaky bullpen performance, the Astros bats accounted for five latter-inning runs to defeat the Cubs 11-6.

It would've been embarrassing had Houston lost, since they outhit Chicago 17-5.

Houston had six extra-base hits, and Miguel Tejada went two for four and drove in five runs.
