Pirates Beat Astros In Rain, 4-3

By  | 

PITTSBURGH, PA -- Nate McLouth's two-run single in the eighth
capped a three-run rally and the Pittsburgh Pirates sent the
Houston Astros to their seventh loss in eight games with a
rain-soaked 4-3 win Tuesday night.

McLouth's line drive to right on a 3-2 pitch off Doug Brocail
(4-4) scored Jose Bautista and pinch-runner Luis Rivas. Adam
LaRoche, who went 3-for-4, hit his 10th homer earlier that inning,
starting the rally with two outs.

The rain delays totaled 3 hours and 7 minutes - once in the top
of the fourth for 2 hours and 39 minutes and again less than an
hour later during the bottom of the sixth, when play was halted for
28 minutes.
