Berkman Goes 4 For 4 To Key Astros' Win

By  | 

Lance Berkman went 4 for 4 and the Houston Astros finished with 24 hits in a 15-11 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

Berkman drove in two runs and scored three times for the Astros, who were one hit shy of their franchise record for a nine-inning game set during the second matchup in a doubleheader against Atlanta on May 30, 1976. Geoff Blum matched his career high with five RBIs.

Mike Hampton (2-3) was the beneficiary of all the run support. He allowed five runs and seven hits over six innings against his former team to improve to 18-10 at Coors Field, the second-most wins by a left-hander in the park's history.
