August 22, 1985: Cardinals (73-48) at Astros (56-64)

Danny Cox allowed just 3 hits as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Houston Astros by a score of 7 to 1 at Colt Stadium. 

Houston was unable to recover after St. Louis went ahead in the top of the 5th inning plating one baserunner. St. Louis banged out 13 hits on the night. 

Cox(7-9) allowed 1 run on the game. Joe Niekro(8-14) was charged with the loss. Bob Lillis was obviously impressed with the pitching of Cox, 'That guy made us look a little silly out there tonight. We just couldn't get to him at all - everything was working for him. I just hope that he got that kinda performance out of his system.'
