April

The Astros lost their season opening series against the Cubs, their one win coming off of former Cincinnati Red Jeff Keppinger's tenth inning RBI single in his first at bat with the club.[1] They were then swept by the Cardinals in St. Louis in a three game series, giving up 19 runs while only being able to score 5 runs. The team then traveled to Pittsburgh where they lost the first game 0-7.[2] The next day, Mike Hampton won his second start of his second stint with the franchise with an 8 strikeout, 6 inning outing for the win over the Pirates.[3] Lance Berkman's 6th inning 3 run home run helped the Astros win the third game of the series against the Pirates. The Astros then returned home to Minute Maid Park, where they had three good outings against the Reds by ace Roy Oswalt, journeyman Wandy Rodriguez and Triple-A Round Rock call-up Felipe Paulino. Jose Valverde gave up a 2 run home run in the top of the ninth inning to Ramon Hernandez for the loss in Oswalt's game on April 17,[4] Rodriguez's got the win with a strong offensive outing by the Astros lead by Geoff Blum with 3 RBIs on April 18,[5] and Geoff Geary gave up a two run double to Micah Owings in the top of the seventh inning for the loss in Paulino's game on April 19.[6] In the fourth game of the series, Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee's back to back solo shot home runs were not enough to beat the Red's Edwin Encarnacion's 2 RBI single and Joey Votto's 2 RBI double to give the Red's the series, 3-1.[7] The Houston Astros are an even 451 wins and 451 losses to the Chicago Cubs
