Astros Vs. Phillies Final Score: Brett Myers Gives Up Walk-Off Home Run In 10th Inning, Houston Loses 4-3

The Houston Astros came back from trailing 3-0 against the Philadelphia Phillies to tie the game in the top of the ninth inning. Matt Downs put the Astros on the board in the seventh inning by hitting a solo shot off of starting pitcher Cliff Lee to make it a 3-1 game.

Then in the top of the ninth inning the Phillies brought out Chad Qualls to close the game, but that is when the Astros bats came alive as they had four hits and scored two runs to tie the game at three. With the game tied at three runs apiece Astros reliever Brandon Lyon was able to keep the Phillies off the board and send the game into extra innings.

The Astros did not score in the top of the 10th and in the bottom half brought out Brett Myers to pitch, but he gave up a walk-off home run to Hunter Pence -- his second of the game -- to give the Phillies a 4-3 win.
