Memphis Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins has agreed to a new 3-year contract with the team.

Hollins made the announcement Thursday as the team met with the media to wrap up the season.

Team owner Michael Heisley and Hollins have been negotiating for a few weeks and they finally came to an agreement earlier in the day on Thursday.

Lionel Hollins, a former star with the Portland Trail Blazers, took over the Grizzlies in January of 2009 after Marc Iavaroni was fired and led Memphis to a 40-42 record this season, 16 more wins than last year.

The Houston Astros  finally joined the win column on Thursday, the last major league team to do so.

The Astros avoided matching the worst start in franchise history, stopping an eight-game losing streak with their first win, 5-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Houston was the only winless team left in the majors and came close to tying the team’s 0-9 opening in 1983.

Bud Norris struckout a career-high nine and held the Cardinals without an earned run for five innings.

Norris also got his first career RBI to put the Astros ahead for good.

Jeff Keppinger had two hits and his first 3 RBIs of the season.

Cleveland, Ohio–David Huff pitched a complete game and Shin-Soo Choo hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning Thursday as the Cleveland Indians ended a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers.

Texas starting pitcher Matt Harrison (0-1) had a shutout through seven innings before Asdrubal Cabrera reached on an error by third baseman Michael Young to start the eighth. Grady Sizemore followed with a ground ball to second, but the runners were safe when shortstop Elvis Andrus dropped the throw for his second error of the game.

Choo the hammered a home run into the seats in right-center, the big hit in what had been a pitcher’s duel between a pair of young left-handers.

David Huff (1-1) was pitching perfect ball as well the first time through the lineup until Elvis Andrus singled to open the fourth and then Michael Young followed with a 2-run homer for a 2-0 Texas lead.

That was the only mistake that Huff made. He gave up four hits, struck out three and retired 10 straight batters before Michael Young’s one -out single in the ninth.
