Astros Vs. Pirates Recap: Houston Falls To Pirates, 6-3

The Houston Astros (42-95) finished a three-game series in Pittsburgh with a 6-3 loss to the Pirates (72-64) on Wednesday night. The Astros were nearly silenced until the final inning.

Pittsburgh starter Kevin Correia (10-8) spread four Houston hits across six innings, and gave up just one run on the night to pick up the win. Third baseman Brandon Laird was the lone bright spot for the Astros, hitting a two-run homer in the top of the ninth off Pirates reliever Jason Grilli.

Houston did total eight hits on the night, though no Astro was able to post multiple hits during the game. After picking up their first run in the fourth, Houston left the bases loaded when catcher Carlos Corporan grounded into a double play to end the inning.

Fernando Abad (0-3) took the loss for the Astros, who take a day off on Thursday before opening a three-game series in Cincinnati on Friday.
