• Astros club four homers, deal blow to Brewers

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Sep 28, 2012
    It's only the second time this season the Astros have hit four homers in a game . Jason Castro hit two homers in a game for the first time in his career, and the Astros got blasts from Brett Wallace and Jose Altuve, whose solo blast in the ninth inning turned out to be the difference in a 7-6 win over the Brewers at Miller Park. Tipping point: The Brewers had closed to within a run by scoring a pair in the ninth and had the go-ahead run on first. They're typically not the kind of team that's going to outslug anyone, but the Astros did just that Friday night when they uncorked a season-high-tying four home runs. Obviously, we needed it at the end, and when you can get out ahead early, that gives your starter a huge break as far as not having to really work and kind of taking some pressure off him.
