Astros Vs. Cardinals Score: Houston Up 2-1 After Four

The Houston Astros lead the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 after four complete innings at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The Astros are looking to bounce back from last night's 7-0 shutout loss.

Despite giving up only three hits for the Cardinals, Kyle Lohse has surrendered two big flies to Houston. Brett Wallace hit a solo home run to right field in the top of the first inning, while catcher Chris Snyder hit one of his own in the third.

The Cardinals' lone run came in the second inning with two outs. Astros pitcher Bud Norris gave up a hit to Allen Craig, who was driven home on a double by Cardinals second baseman Daniel Descalso.

Norris has also given up four hits through four innings to the Cardinals. He has only one strikeout, but has yet to issue a walk. Norris is looking to improve upon his 5-10 season record, and his effort so far would also bring down his 5.23 ERA.
