Astros Keep Up Winning Ways

By  | 

CINCINNATI -- Luke Scott hit a bases-loaded double in a five-run eighth-inning rally and the Houston Astros went on to beat Cincinnati 8-to-6 to complete a two-game sweep.
After Scott's double, Morgan Ensberg followed with the go-ahead
sacrifice fly off losing pitcher David Weathers.
Scott also hit a solo homer in the seventh and finished with
four r-b-i's. Pinch-hitter Jason Lane homered in the ninth for
Josh Hamilton and Brandon Phillips went deep for the Reds, who
led 6-to-1 after five innings behind starter Bronson Arroyo.
Brad Lidge (lihj) pitched an inning of relief for the win and is
1-and-oh. Weathers dropped to 0-and-2. Dan Wheeler notched his
third save.
Houston also rallied for five runs in the eighth to win
Wednesday night's game.
