HOUSTON -- Roy Oswalt came off the disabled list and beat Cincinnati again, striking out five in the Houston Astros' 5-4 win over the Reds on Monday night.
Oswalt (8-8) won his fifth straight start against the Reds and
improved to 20-1 in 25 career outings against them, despite giving
up a grand slam to Adam Dunn. The Houston ace threw 74 pitches in
five innings in his first start since aggravating a left hip injury
on July 11. He went on the DL on July 19 and was activated just
before Monday's game.
