Houston Astros Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07

Houston Astros Notes, Quotes 2009-09-07--RHP Roy Oswalt felt "sick and achy" after leaving his Saturday start with lower back tightness. He will be re-evaluated later this week ahead of his tentatively scheduled start Thursday against Atlanta.

--Manager Cecil Cooper is mum on the identity of the Astros' next round of call-ups. "Don't expect some 12 or 14 guys," Cooper said. "A veteran team doesn't work like that... I will tell you one thing, though. I think you'll be surprised."

BY THE NUMBERS: 52 -- Stolen bases for center fielder Michael Bourn, the most in the National League. Bourn is the first Astro to exceed 50 in a season since Eric Yelding had 64 in 1990.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It's the way we were capable of playing all year." -- LF Carlos Lee, on the Astros' current three-game winning streak after they were all but eliminated from contention. The Astros finished their game 14 games out in the National League Central race and 10 out in the wild card.
