The 2012 season opener for the Houston Astros ended in disappointment as they fell to the Colorado Rockies 5-3. The fielding for the Astros needs work as they had four errors which resulted in four runs on the night, and ultimately cost them the game. The Astros starting the game off well by going up 1-0 after the first inning when J.D. Martinez scored when Carlos Lee hit a single to provide the first score.
The Rockies countered by putting up three runs in the third inning, and while the Astros responded to tie the game in the fourth on a Lee two-run home run. That would be the last runs that the Astros would score Friday tonight.
