HOUSTON (AP) -- Wandy Rodriguez added another impressive start to his dazzling streak and Houston's young hitters got off to a fast start in a 6-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.
On the same day the Astros traded star slugger Lance Berkman to the New York Yankees, Houston's rookie-filled lineup scored five times in the first two innings and led the club to its fourth straight win. It was the fourth consecutive loss for Milwaukee.
Chris Johnson had three hits and drove in a run while extending his hitting streak to a career-long 14 games and fellow rookie Angel Sanchez had two RBIs.
Rodriguez (9-11) struck out nine in a season-high eight innings, allowing five hits while improving to 6-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last seven starts.
