    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 26, 2012
    The Mets took two of three from the last-place Astros for their first home series win since early July.

But the problem for the Astros was the other eight innings, in which they got absolutely nothing cooking against Jeremy Hefner, who entered with a 5.11 ERA. "It was a great throw by Duda, giving us a chance to keep it tied," catcher Kelly Shoppach said of his teammate, who is often criticized for being a sub-par outfielder.
