Astros end seven-game skid

Astros end seven-game skid
Pence gets first big-league hit; Biggio hits two-run triple
By Alyson Footer /

HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros broke out of their funk in a big way on Saturday, toppling the Brewers, 10-1, before a sellout crowd of 41,004 at Minute Maid Park.
The game featured rookie Hunter Pence, who made himself comfortable in center field as well as at the plate in the Astros' rout of the Brewers, which ended a seven-game losing streak.

Pence struck out looking in his first at-bat during a 12-pitch battle with Brewers right-hander Dave Bush. Pence was hit by a pitch in his next at-bat, but he singled in the sixth to mark his first big-league hit.

Pence also made a spectacular catch in center in the sixth, sprinting toward the warning track just to the right of the hill to rob Prince Fielder of a hit.

The Astros broke open what was a 1-1 game with four runs in the fifth and five in the sixth. Craig Biggio logged a two-run triple in the sixth, marking his 2,953rd career hit.
