Young and Snyder Power D-backs Passed the Astros

May 3, 2010 by  

The Arizona Diamondbacks would leave Chicago after a disappointing series to face the Houston Astros. The D-backs would play after losing three in a row to Chicago but, the Astros would be having some trouble of their own looking to snap their six-game losing streak. Cesar Valdez would start his first game pitching for the Diamondbacks as he would face right-hander Felipe Paulino. Paulino has yet to win a game for the Astros as he would give up the first four D-backs runs. Valdez would give up the first run of the game in the first inning as Houston would take the lead.

After the first inning of play, Valdez would self-correct to go five innings, four of them scoreless, striking out two. The D-backs would strike with some offense as they would tie the game in the second inning and take the lead in the third. In the third inning, Chris Snyder would hit his fifth homer of the season, driving in three runs, with two outs. Diamondbacks pitching would be able to hold the Astros to a scoreless remainder of the game as the offense poured it on. The Diamondbacks are not known for their late game run production but, were able to come through at Minute Maid Park.

In the seventh inning, the D-backs would score two more runs and another three runs in the eighth, to drive up the score to nine to one. Chris Young would have three RBI in the game as he helped propel the team to a much needed victory. On Tuesday Ian Kennedy will face Roy Oswalt for the second game of a four game series.
