Game 19: Astros 6, Rockies 4

And the Astros avoid the sweep, but barely.

Nice outing from Shawn Chacon, again. The guy’s turning out to be quite a find so far, although it’s fair to worry about only 3 strikeouts.

And another nice inning from Wesley Wright, and an actual save from Jose Valverde. Shaky, but a save nonetheless.

Very questionable decision by Cecil Cooper in the 8th. Down by a run with Hunter Pence on first and nobody out, Cooper ordered up a bunt from J.R. Towles, which Towles executed. Except … the Astros’ chances of winning the game went down, from 41 percent to 37 percent. I guess you could say at least Towles didn’t bounce into a double play.

Anyway, it all worked out. The Astros can say they haven’t been swept in a series yet, which is true.
