PITTSBURGH, PA -- Nate McLouth and Ryan Doumit each hit home runs to lead 10 Pittsburgh Pirates with at last one hit in a 10-7 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
Adam LaRoche reached base four times, scored twice and drove in
a run as eight Pirates had RBIs. Jason Bay went 2-for-3 with two
walks and two runs, and Xavier Nady had two hits and two RBIs for
Pittsburgh, which scored more runs during the first three innings
Monday than they did in being swept in three games in Cincinnati
over the weekend.
