Astros Vs. Brewers, Game 2: J.A. Happ Throws 6 Scoreless In 4-0 Win

For the second straight game, the Astros pitching kept the Milwaukee hitters in check. This time, J.A. Happ threw six scoreless innings as the Astros defeated the Brewers 4-0 to complete a two-game "sweep," if you're into that kind of thing.

All four of the games runs were scored in the fourth innings. In the frame, Jed Lowrie hit a two-run home run, Chris Snyder singled home a run and Jordan Schaefer singled home another. After Happ, Wesley Wright, Wilton Lopez and Fernando Abad combined for three scoreless innings of relief.

After a four-game losing streak, the Astros have won back-to-back games for the first time since a five-game winning streak at the beginning of the month.
