HOUSTON (AP) - Ty Wigginton hit his 12th home run of August and
four Houston Astros pitchers combined to shut out the St. Louis
Cardinals 3-0 on Sunday.
Houston swept the three-game series with the Cardinals and has
won five straight. The Astros finished 21-9 for the month, third
best record in the National League behind Chicago and Milwaukee.
Wigginton tied the August club record set by Jeff Bagwell in
2000 when he hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning. It was
Wiggintons 21st of the season.
