Houston Astros Roster Report 2009-09-07


Houston Astros Roster Report 2009-09-07--SS Miguel Tejada became the second National League player this year to reach 50 multi-hit games with his four hits Sunday. Hanley Ramirez of the Marlins has 52 multi-hit games.

--RF Hunter Pence saw his eight-game hitting streak snapped with an 0-for-3 day Sunday. Pence had begun to bounce back from a post-All-Star swoon with the eight-game stretch that saw him go 11-for-27 (.407).

--IF Jeff Keppinger missed his second straight game Sunday with tightness in his back. Keppinger left Friday's game against the Phillies in the eighth inning and had his back treated Saturday.
