Astros Vs. Brewers, Game 1 Final Score: Houston Wins 8-3

Carlos Lee and Bud Norris continued their respective hot streaks, combing to help the Houston Astros take an 8-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of their series in Houston. Norris won his third consecutive start, holding the Brewers to four hits and one run in seven innings of work, with nine strikeouts. Save for a solo home run by Corey Hart, the Brewers never put a runner past second base against Norris.

Lee was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a home run, notching his fourth consecutive multihit game and leading the Houston lineup. The first baseman is now hitting .366 with two homers and nine RBIs in his last 19 games, nine of which have featured two or more hits. Lee started the scoring in the second with a leadoff single, then scored from first on a double.
