They salvaged one game after three losses in a row as Adam Wainwright went 7, allowing 7 hits, 1 earned run, and striking out 7.

Tyler Greene had a great day at the plate, 3 for 3 with 2 home runs and a double, 4 RBI, and a stolen base. (I miss stolen bases.) Alan Craig pitched in, as well, with a double and a home run and 3 RBI.

The Redbirds scored in each of the first 4 innings while Wainwright kept the Astros in check. He did throw 103 pitches – a bit high -but got first-pitch strikes on 16 of the 27 batters he faced.
