In such a disappointing season as this one, Astros' fans have certainly been through a lot. That's why Friday night was really something special, and it was a welcome change.

Each of the first six Astro hitters recorded base-hits, setting a franchise record in the process. Even the losingest team in club history (55-102) can do something exciting every once and a while, and that's why baseball is such a wonderful sport.
