Aneurysm? Well, Astros starting pitcher Aneury Rodriguez still didn't earn his first career win; if not for a Matt Kemp solo shot, he might have, as he shut the Dodgers down with four scattered hits over six innings. Helping Rodriguez' cause were Rafael Furcal and Jamey Carroll, both 0-for-4 in the top two lineup slots; Jerry Sands chipped in with an 0-for-4 of his own, and Jay Gibbons and James Loney threw in 0-for-3 performances for good measure. The Dodgers were 0-for-4 with RISP, which is pathetic on both ends of that ratio.
But this game all came down to Matt Guerrier in the ninth inning with the score tied. Guerrier couldn't get that final out after Brett Wallace hit a one-out double to Sands in right, and then, with two out, JR Towles knocked in Wallace with a walk-off single. 26 outs, not enough to beat the worst team in the NL. And my head is about to explode. I need an off-day.
