|Myers Helps Astros Beat Cardinals
|HOUSTON (AP) -- Brett Myers added another quality start to his line, pitching eight strong innings to help the Houston Astros beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 on Saturday night.
Pedro Feliz hit a two-run single in Houston's three-run first and Jeff Keppinger went deep for the Astros.
Myers (6-6) gave up one run and five hits, struck out five and walked none. He extended his club record of starts of six innings or more to begin the season to 18 and is the only starter in the majors to achieve the mark this year.
Jeff Suppan (0-5) allowed four runs and seven hits in 4 2-3 innings for St. Louis.
