Lee, Astros heating up
Posted on: June 9, 2010 11:48 pm
Carlos Lee's 10th-inning grand slam, coupled with a Pirates loss, moved the Astros out of last place in the National League Central.
Lee, who entered June hitting just .206, has a hit in every game this month and is hitting .333 with four home runs and 12 RBIs this month.
It's not just Lee getting hot in Houston, Lance Berkman has improved his average 28 points this month and the Astros are 7-3 in June. Houston is now just a half-game behind the Brewers for fourth in the division.
