Another loss for the hapless Houston Astros

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Houston Astros dropped to 0-8 Wednesday night, with Brad Penny and Albert Pujols combining to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-1 win over the offensive-challenged Houston Astros.

The Astros remained the lone winless team in major league baseball, mostly because of  a major league-low 14 runs scored. They have scored one or fewer runs five times this year.

If they lose the series finale on Thursday, it would match the franchise-worst 0-9 start in 1983. The Astros, however recovered that year, finishing 85-77.

New Astros manager Brad Mills  held a rare, off-day optional workout Tuesday in St. Louis in an effort to help players relax.

Brad Penny (1-0) allowed an unearned run on three hits in seven innings. Albert Pujols drove in his major league-leading 15th run.

The Reds 2010 season has produced so many last at-bat wins and extra-inning games that manager Dusty Baker can’t keep up. All the exhausting play has his mind tired he can’t even think.

Cincinnati has certainly earned every one of their five wins.

Joey Votto drove in the go ahead run with a two-out single in the 11th inning Tuesday and the Reds got past the Florida Marlins, 10-8.

Cincinnati won despite blowing a 6-1 lead. They beat the Marlins 6-5 in 10 innings in the series opener on Monday.

Jonny Gomes and Ryan Hanigan hit three-run homers to aid the Reds most recent victory. Brandon Phillips had four hits, including a single to drive in an insurance run in the 11th.

Hanigan singled to open the inning against Dan Meyer (0-1). he moved to second on a sacrifice and Drew Stubbs walked. After left fielder Chris Coghlan robbed Orlando Cabrera with a lunging catch on the warning track, Votto’s soft line drive on a 2-2 pitch just got past the leaping Hanley Ramirez at shortstop.

Jorge Cantu of Florida singled home a run and became the first player since 1921 to have at least on hit and one RBI in the first eight games of a season. The Marlins said that since the RBI became an official statistics in 1920, the only other player with such a streak was George Kelly of the New York Giants in 1921 based on research by major league baseball.

Micah Owings (2-0) struck out three in two scoreless innings. Francisco Cordero pitched a perfect 11th for his fourth save in four chances.

The Reds had 13 hits and were led by Brandon Phillips who went 4 for 6 with 2 RBI’s and 2 runs scored. Joey Votto had 3 hits.

Albert Pujols homered and drove in four runs, leading Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals over winless and hapless Houston, 5-0, Monday in their home opener in St. Louis, dropping the Astros to 0-7.

The Astros are off to their worst since opening 0-9 in 1983. They’ve been shut out three times while facing a string of aces-Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Roy Halladay and Wainwright this early in the season and have scored a major league-low 13 runs.

The Cardinals’ pregame pomp of the traditional introductory motorcade, including an appearance by 89-year-old Hall of Famer Stan Musial and a crowd of 46,918-the largest at 5-year-old Busch Stadium.


Will Venable two-run shot highlighted a 10-run fourth inning, and Kyle Blanks homered and drove in a career-high five runs to lead San Diego to a rout in their home opener.

The Padres hit and scored as if they were playing in a small minor league ballpark than in spacious Petco Park. Their 17 runs on 19 hits were the most by any team at the downtown ballpark since it opened in 2004.


The Chicago Cubs put on a display of home run power for new owner Tom Ricketts and beat the Milwaukee Brewers in their home opener.

Ricketts, the longtime fan whose family took over the team in October, joined his two brothers and sister to sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh-inning stretch.

A  crowd of 41,306 turned out at Wrigley Field on a 58-degree afternoon and watched the Cubs build an 8-1 lead.

Ryan Dempster ran his career record against the Brewers to 12-3.
