Enhanced Box Score: Astros 3, Cubs 4 – September 16, 2011

Enhanced Box Scores

Who could have predicted that the only offense the Astros would get would come from Carlos Lee? Me. That’s who. Also: everyone else.


Matt Garza was dominant today, like so many Astros opponents before him, but, in Mike Quade’s continual bid to let his players get “milestones” he left Matt Garza in for, perhaps, one too many batters (Lee’s second homer happened at 116 pitches, mind you). Garza ended up throwing 124.

The game went 12 innings, and, of all people, Marlon Byrd won the game with a bases-loaded single. Didn’t see that coming.

The Astros clearly wanted this game badly. Gotta love September baseball…
