The Astros got a strong final performance by Eirk Bedard who went 7 innings of no run ball while only allowing 3 hits and striking out 9. In Astros fashion manger Bo Porter called in the bullpen and 2/3’s of an inning later the game was tied at 1.
The game stayed tied at 1 all the way till the wheels fell off in the 14th inning when the Astros allowed 4 runs. In the bottom of the 14th the Astros went down in order sealing in their 15th loss in a row to end the season.
