Astros Snap Dodgers' 8-Game Win Streak

HOUSTON -- Carlos Lee hit a two-run homer, Russ Ortiz pitched well after a rough first inning and the Houston Astros ended Los Angeles' eight-game winning streak with an 8-5 win over the Dodgers on Tuesday night.
Miguel Tejada drove in three runs and Jose Valverde shrugged off
a right ankle injury to shut out the Dodgers in the ninth for his
first save. Orlando Hudson hit a hard grounder into Valverde's
right ankle and the closer limped around and took some warmup
pitches before finishing the game.
Ortiz (1-0) gave up three runs in the first inning, then stifled
the Dodgers for the next four while the Astros took over. Los
Angeles came in with the highest batting average in the majors
(.302) and an NL-leading 82 runs.
