Astros 7, Braves 2

on .

Let's find some positives. Brian McCann returned to the lineup, and went 3-3. (To make room, Pena was sent back to Richmond.) Andruw Jones hit his 16th homer in the first, a 2 run shot that accounted for the offense. The bullpen gave up 1 run in 3.1 innings. Villarreal and Yates were good. That's about it. Sosa (1-8, 5.58) kept it close until the 5th, then he lost his command, had a misplay by Giles, and had an umpire that wouldn't even call a strike on a hanging breaking ball that was taken right down the middle on one pitch. Chuck James should be given this rotation spot soon, if not Sosa continues his quest to lose 20. Hudson pitches against a minor league callup tomorrow.
