|More Cardinals Errors, Another Astros Victory
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Wandy Rodriguez carried a one-hitter into the sixth inning and Lance Berkman homered for the second straight game to help the Houston Astros beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-6 Wednesday night.
Cardinals shortstop Brendan Ryan endured a second straight two-error game and his fielding miscue in the fourth helped the Astros score five unearned runs to go ahead 6-1. Jeff Keppinger's three-run double and Berkman's fourth homer of the season that glanced off the right-field foul pole came on consecutive pitches from Kyle Lohse (0-3).
Rodriguez (2-4) allowed four earned runs on five hits in six innings.
