National League Game Summary - Milwaukee at Houston
(Sunday, May 1st)
Final Score: Houston 5, Milwaukee 0
Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Carlos Lee belted a three-run homer in support
of Houston starting pitcher Bud Norris, but wound up leaving Sunday's 5-0 win
over the Milwaukee Brewers following a violent collision with teammate Angel
Sanchez in the seventh inning.
Lee collided with Sanchez in shallow left field while pursuing a ball hit by
Milwaukee's Mark Kotsay. It appeared the Astros shortstop kneed Lee in the
ribs. Lee remained down for several minutes before being removed from the
field on a cart. He was then taken to a local hospital to have tests performed
on his left ribcage.
Norris (2-1) limited the Brewers to three hits and three walks in 7 2/3
innings. The right-hander also recorded 11 strikeouts, three shy of his career
Jason Bourgeois collected two hits and scored a run for Houston, which took
two straight after dropping Friday's series opener.
Chris Narveson (1-2) gave up four runs on seven hits and fanned seven over six
full frames for the Brewers.
The Astros produced a run with three consecutive singles by Lee, Brett Wallace
and Bill Hall to leadoff the second.
Lee put Houston up 4-0 in the sixth with a blast to the left field seats,
scoring Bourgeois and Hunter Pence after they both singled.
Facing Norris with two outs and a runner on first in the seventh, Kotsay hit a
fly ball that fell in for a double and left Lee in pain. Yuniesky Betancourt
flied out to right field to end the threat when play resumed.
Houston scratched out an unearned run in the bottom of the frame.
Wallace has now hit safely in 10 straight games...Milwaukee's Ryan Braun went
0-for-3 to snap his hitting streak against Houston at 13 games.
