Astros win 10-1

They finally score more than 2-3 runs and end their 7 game losing streak. The big news of the night is the Major League debut of rookie outfielder Hunter Pence, who went 1 for 3. I think it was a move born of desperation, but it’s been done. One long term repercussion is that I think by bringing him up in the first half of the season, Pence will be a free agent one season sooner than he would have been. But I suppose from Garner and Purpura’s perspective, their jobs are on the line this year, not 4 years from now.
