HOUSTON (AP) - Carlos Lee drove in three runs and the Houston
Astros turned a dramatic double play to end a 4-3 victory over the
Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.
The Phillies loaded the bases off Doug Brocail with one out in
the ninth inning. Shane Victorino flew out to Darin Erstad in left
and Erstad threw a perfect throw to catcher Brad Ausmus, who tagged
out Pedro Feliz at the plate.
Brocail and Berkman embraced Ausmus as the crowd cheered and
Erstad sprinted in from the outfield to join the celebration.
Brocail earned his second save in as many chances. Houston
manager Cecil Cooper gave Jose Valverde the night off after
Houston's usual closer was struck in the face with a line drive by
Feliz on Friday.
