Astros 2, Dodgers 1

 Lee's blast
Matt Albers made a spot start in place of the injured Roy Oswalt -- and pitched like an ace. The righty gave the Astros five scoreless innings, in which he fanned five Dodgers and gave up just three hits. Eric Munson and Carlos Lee each contributed a solo tater to provide Houston with enough offense to win.
