TODAY'S WRAPS: September 19, 2007
A Pence for your thoughts
Weeks' homer for naught
In one swing Rickie Weeks gave the Brewers all of the momentum, launching a two-run shot in the ninth to send the game to extras. But the Astros proved one better in the 10th as a Hunter Pence single knocked in the game-winner for Houston and knocked the Brewers one game behind the Cubs for first place in the NL Central.

Series at a glance:
Lee, Pence lift Astros
Carlos Lee had a chance to win the game in the 10th after putting the Astros on the board with a homer and singling in the go-ahead run in the eighth. But while Lee only flied out, he did move Brandon Backe over to third base. The productive out set the stage for Hunter Pence, who lofted a single to left, giving the Astros the win.
