Kevin Bass had a good evening at the plate. He slapped a single in the 1st inning, clubbed a three-run home run in the 6th inning and slapped a one-base hit in the 8th inning. The Houston offense smacked the Philadelphia pitching staff around, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings.
Dave Rucker(1-2) was the loser. He got hit hard, allowing 10 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 1/3 innings.
