Astros Vs. Giants, Game 1 Final Score: San Francisco Wins 6-3

The Houston Astros dropped their series opener against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night, but might also lost a key member of their pitching rotation in the process. Starting pitcher Bud Norris only lasted 3 and 1/3 innings, leaving with a left knee sprain that he appeared to suffer while fielding a ground out to first base. (quote courtesy of MLB.com)

"I'm pretty frustrated about it," Norris said. "I'm trying to go out there and help these guys as much as I can because I'm a competitor and want to compete, but I'm frustrated and it's pretty sore now and I have to come back tomorrow and see how it feels."

The Giants' Madison Bumgarner (8-4) struck out 12 Astros batters and didn't issue a walk a in 7 2/3 innings. The Astros would tack on two runs late, with RBI doubles by Brian Bixler and Jason Castro in the 8th and 9th innings, respectively.
