Blue Jays Beat Astros in 11
Toronto Blue Jays starter Steven Wright was definitely locked-in. He led his team to a win over the Houston Astros, 4-2. Reliever Cedric Armstrong picked up the win. His record improves to 6-16. Orlando Rivera took the loss. Toronto is last in the American League Eastern Division with a record of 64-98.

Runs were few and far between in this one. So, Tony Butler's at-bat with no one out in the top of the 11th was crucial. The Toronto pinch hitter hit a solo home run, to give his team a 3-2 lead.

"We didn't go down without a fight," said Houston manager Rick Brehm.
