Astros Vs. Rockies Final Score: Houston Spoils Jamie Moyer's Start, Win 7-3

The big story in Saturday's game was the that the Colorado Rockies was that they were starting 49-year-old Jamie Moyer. However, that did not go well as the Astros were able to score four runs off of Moyer in his five innings of work which included two home runs to win 7-3.

Jordan Schafer led of the game with a home run off of Moyer, and the other one was a two-run blast by J.D. Martinez which put the Astros up 3-0 in the fourth inning. The Astros were able to score a run in each of the fourth through eighth innings to lead 7-1 heading into the ninth inning.

Lucas Harrell pitched seven scoreless innings for the win while striking out four and allowing only three hits.
