García Goes on Rampage Against Mariners
It wasn't just another day at the ballpark for Norberto García today. García went on a tear and cracked hit after hit off Seattle pitchers. When the dust settled on the diamond at Minute Maid Park, he had a 5-for-5 line and a day he will long remember. And the Houston Astros had a 15-3 victory over the Mariners.

"Yeah, it'll be something nice to tell the grandkids, but it won't get me a hit tomorrow," he joked in the postgame interview.

Norberto García hit a two-run single in the 1st, hit an RBI single in the 1st, hit a two-run home run off Lionel Calderara in the 3rd, singled in the 5th and singled in the 7th.

Presently García is batting .304 with 126 hits and 11 home runs. He has knocked in 58 runs and scored 62 times.
