Astros Vs. Dodgers: Houston Rebounds From Two Dodgers' Losses With Three-Hit Shutout

Houston finally got its offense rolling in the final game of the Astros weekend home series with the high-flying Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, pounding out a dozen runs on the same number of hits in posting a 12-0 shutout for the Astros' sixth win of the season.

After dropping the first two games in the series at Minute Maid Park, scoring only one run in each game and nine hits total, Houston was hoping for a little more offensive production, which they clearly got on Sunday. First-baseman Carlos Lee got things started for the Astros with a two-run home-run blast in the opening inning, his second of the year, and center-fielder Jordan Schafer followed that up with a three-run round-tripper in the second inning that put Houston up 6-0.

Chris Johnson and Jason Castro each had two hits for Houston.

Right-handed starter Wandy Rodriquez went seven strong innings, giving up no runs on just three hits to record his first win of the season against two losses. Rodriquez even drove in a run for the Astros to help his own cause.

After finishing the short three-game home stand with Los Angeles, the Astros now head back out of town to Milwaukee, where they will open a three-game mid-week series with the 7-9 Brewers before moving on the Cincinnati for weekend series with the Reds.
