The game was essentially over after the first inning when the Dodgers scored two runs in the run when Matt Kemp hit a two-run home run off of J.A. Happ en route to a 3-for-3 performance from the plate. The Astros would get on the board in the the fourth inning when Chris Snyder recorded his second RBI of the year by knocking in Brian Bogusevic.
The Astros were held in check by Ted Lilly who earned the win by pitching six innings, allowing four hits, one run and striking out five. Happ got the loss and was always in trouble Friday night as he allowed at least one hit in each of his six innings of work.
The Astros missed a golden opportunity in the fifth inning when they loaded the bases with two outs, but came away with nothing when Jed Lowrie grounded into a force out to end the inning.
