Pence Rallies Astros Past Brewers

By  | 

MILWAUKEE -- Hunter Pence had a two-run triple to highlight a four-run eighth inning as Houston rallied to beat Milwaukee 9-7.

Brewers relievers Derrick Turnbow and Greg Acquino failed to
protect a three-run lead heading into the inning.

Milwaukee teed off on Astros starter Roy Oswalt (OHZ'-walt) who
gave up 5 runs on 19 hits in 5-and-two-thirds innings. Oswalt went
into the game with a 6-and-0 mark and 1.00 era in his previous
seven starts.

Craig Counsel tripled and drove in three runs for the Brewers.
