Despite a strong performance by Wesley Wright, the Astros trailed heading into the seventh, when the middle of the order started a rally. Pence lined an infield single off the left wrist of Milwaukee starter Randy Wolf, prompting Wolf’s exit.Milwaukee reliever Kameron Loe promptly issued walks to Carlos Lee and Chris Johnson before giving way to lefthander Zach Braddock. Astros manager Brad Mills pinch-hit Jason Michaels for rookie Brett Wallace, and it paid off as Michaels hit a grand slam into the Crawford Boxes for a 4-2 lead.
“It was 2-0 there, and I didn’t think (Braddock) wanted to throw another ball,” Michaels said. “I was fortunate enough to get some wood on it.”
