Ron Darling (3-3) made the most of some wildness to hold off the Astros. He would walk 6 but only give up 4 hits. The Astros could only come up with a couple runs as they could not take advantage of his wildness. Darling Also struck out 6.
The Mets offense was led by Darryl Strawberry who went 2-3 with a double and an RBI. Nolan Ryan (4-4) survived after a Horrible 1st inning. He gave up all the Mets runs in the frame. He would end up going 8 innings in a losing effort. Orosco struck out 2 in the 9th for his 7th save.
The Final Score 3-2 Mets
