It was a good, classic pitching duel that took place on Tuesday night in Houston between the Astros and the visiting Colorado Rockies. For the first eight innings of the game, Zack Greinke and Antonio Senzatela held their respective foes at bay. Neither man walked a single batter in all of that time, and they each only gave up three miserly hits. Eventually, though, both men had to turn the ball over.
And in extra innings, we finally got some offensive action. Raimel Tapia drove in a run via a single in the top of the 11th for the Rockies, but it was not enough as the Astros would get two in the bottom half of the frame. Kyle Tucker drove in a sacrifice fly and then Myles Straw collected a single to drive in the winning run, giving the Astros a 2-1 win. The victory is their sixth in a row now, and they now sit at 13-10 overall, the same exact record the Rockies have as well.
