    SAN ANTONIO – Righthanders Jerome Williams and Brad Peacock each pitched three solid innings, and Chris Carter drilled a three-run homer to help the Astros beat the Rangers 6-5 on Friday night in the opener of the two-game Big League Weekend against the Rangers at the Alamodome. The Astros and Rangers, division rivals playing for the first time at the Alamodome, drew 49,932 over the two games 22,677 on Friday and 27,255 Saturday. That run proved crucial after the Rangers’ Michael Choice drilled a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning before righthander Jason Stoffel retired the next three in order for the save. Carter's drive off Texas starter Matt Harrison cleared the right-center fence 360 feet from home plate at the Alamodome, designed primarily for football and special events such as the NCAA Final Four.
