Astros Make Cincinnati See Red by Taking Series

Houston continues to have a good month of June by taking the series from the tough Reds squad, winning two of the three games. The Astros have won seven of their last 10.

Game One: Hou 2, Cin 0

J.R. Richard moves to 10-3 by outpitching Cincinnati's Tom Seaver and striking out 13 Reds batsmen in the process, matching the season high for the MLB strikeout king. RBI singles from Cesar Cedeno and Jeffrey Leonard represent the only scoring.

Game Two: Hou 4, Cin 2

Mustachioed hombre Randy Niemann has a strong outing, going eight innings and only giving up two runs. Enos Cabell continues his hot month by going two for four, and backup catcher Bruce Bochy drives in two runs. New addition Bert Roberge gets his second save in the second game of the doubleheader.

Game Three:  Cin 6, Hou 3

Houston's Joe Niekro was mowing down the Reds batters and took a 3-1 lead into the seventh. But the knuckler suddenly took some strange bends, and Cincinnati scored five runs in the top of the seventh to win one for starter Paul Moskau, with fine relief help from Pedro Borbon and Doug Bair. Davey Concepcion hit his fourth homer and drove in two, and the Cincy cause was aided by doubles from Bench, Foster and Geronimo.
