The Astros Beat The Nationals 6-1

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – It took a while Wednesday night but the Houston Astros finally broke through, beating the Washington Nationals 6-1.

The team was on their way to winning a nail bitter, when they’d score four runs in the eighth to not only give them a very comfortable lead heading into the ninth inning, but also it would be the first time the Astros scored more than four runs in a game since last Wednesday, a span of five games in which they went 2-3. 294 more words
