Rodriguez leads Astros past Pirates, 2-0

By  | 

PITTSBURGH, PA -- Lance Berkman and Miguel Tejada doubled in
runs and Wandy Rodriguez pitched six shutout innings in his second
start after coming off the disabled list, and the Houston Astros
ended a five-game losing streak by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates
2-0.

The Astros still aren't scoring - they've totaled only eight
runs in six games, and were outscored 19-3 while being swept in a
three-game weekend series by Milwaukee. They didn't need many runs
in this game, not with Rodriguez limiting the Pirates to five hits
while teaming with three relievers on Houston's third shutout of
the season.

Chris Sampson, Doug Brocail and Jose Valverde finished up the
five-hitter with an inning each, with Valverde getting his 16th
save in 19 opportunities.
