Norris Handcuffs Cardinals Again; Astros Sweep
ST. LOUIS (AP) --Bud Norris shut down St. Louis for the fourth straight time, Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer and the Houston Astros wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Cardinals with a 4-1 victory on Thursday.

Houston's Lance Berkman extended his streak of reaching base to nine in a row with a double and two singles before grounding out.

Norris (2-4) struck out eight and walked none in eight innings. He gave up one run and six hits.

Though he's 8-7 with a 5.10 ERA lifetime, and had lost his last three starts overall, Norris is 4-0 with a 0.35 ERA in four career starts against St. Louis.
