Astros vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Arizona Caps Off Sweep By Pounding Houston, 8-1

The Houston Astros dropped another contest to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, this time by a final score of 8-1. Houston's loss resulted in them being swept for the third time this month.

Starting pitcher Armando Galarraga didn't last long for the Astros. He was unable to get out of the fourth inning after allowing five runs on six hits and two walks. The bullpen didn't fare a whole lot better, as Wesley Wright allowed a couple of runs in 1.1 innings, while Fernando Rodriguez also gave up a run in his 1.2 innings.

Aaron Hill homered twice for Arizona, as the D-Backs capped off a series in which they outscored the Astros 23-6. Hill had a total of three hits on the day, while Chris Young contributed two of his own. Ian Kennedy had some command issues, but was able to get through six innings allowing just one run, despite issuing five walks.

The Astros were held to just six hits, with Jason Castro's sixth-inning RBI single providing their only scoring. Castro led the Astros' offense with two hits.
