John Tudor went 8 innings and gave a 1 run to get the victory he is now (6-2) on the season. Tudor allowed plenty of runners in scoring position but the Astros could not get that one big hit. Their only run off of Tudor came on a Alan Ashby HR (4) in the 7th.
Joe Niekro finally had a good start, only to see it go to waste. He is now (1-7) on the season. On a bright note Alan Ashby threw out 3 of 4 would be base stealers.
The Final Score 3-1 Cardinals
