Houston takes out Tampa in 4.

In a good matchup it was the Houston Astros 7, the Tampa Bay Rays 4 at
Tropicana Field.

Houston had 5 runs cross the plate in the top of the 2nd inning with the help
of 3 hits. The critical plate appearance was by Alex Bregman who quieted the
crowd when he banged out a single which was good for two runs. Tampa Bay
proved to be no trouble in the bottom of the 9th.

Will Harris(2-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 and 1/3 innings and
allowing no runs. Ken Giles earned the save, his 4th. Jake Faria(0-2) was
the loser. Houston wins the series 3-1.
