• Astros fail to protect lead in ninth, drop fourth straight

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 3, 2013
    Game recap: Given a one-run lead to protect, Astros closer Jose Veras couldn’t get the save Friday night at Minute Maid Park. Bud Norris, who pitched seven strong innings, was in line for the decision after the Astros mounted a three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning to take a temporary 3-2 lead. I knew that if I took a pitch [at 3-0] he was going to have to come again and throw another strike, because he wouldn't want to walk me to put the tying run in scoring position.
