Norris has had great outings in his last 2 appearances. In his last start before the Dodgers game, Norris threw 7 innings while giving up 1 run on 6 hits in another 1-0 loss, this time against division rivals Pittsburgh for the Astros.

The lone run of the game came in the bottom of the 8th. The run came from David Navarro, a back up catcher filling in for Rod Barajas who was placed on the DL. Navarro hit a solo home run off Astros reliever Wilton Lopez.

Houston had a total of 3 hits in the game. Two of which came from 3rd baseman Chad Johnson and the other from 2nd baseman Jeff Keppinger.

Hiroki Kuroda (5-8 3.07 ERA) got the win for the Dodgers. Kuroda went 7 innings while giving up 3 hits.

The Astros now fall to 13 games behind Milwaukee and St. Louis who are tied for the NL Central lead.

The Astros will continue their road trip, but this time a lot closer to home. The Astros will start their in-state rivalry with the Texas Rangers tonight at 7 o’clock.
