• First pitch: Astros GM Luhnow discusses Norris, Harrell as trade deadline nears

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Jul 10, 2013
    1 and 2 starters Bud Norris and Lucas Harrell prior to the July 31 trade deadline. Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow has listened to, read and tuned out Norris trade rumors ever since a 107-loss 2012 season ended.

The Cardinals scored in every inning but the third during the initial six frames, held a 6-0 lead after the fourth and captured a 9-5 victory Tuesday during an interleague contest at Busch Stadium.
