Bud Norris

Lance Berkman continues to break the hearts of Astros fans. While there hasn't been much to cheer about for the Astros this season, Bud Norris had a no-hitter through 6 2/3 innings before Berkman broke it up with a homer to right.

Berkman deposited Norris' 3-1 pitch into the stands in right. Norris got Colby Rasmus to pop out to Clint Barmes to end the inning.

It was Berkman's fourth homer of the season against his old team. Berkman had a 3-0 pitch that looked like it was low called a ball, immediately before launching Norris' fastball into the stands.

Norris has walked four and struck out one in seven innings.

Three times Norris walked the leadoff batter of the inning, only to get a double play each time.

Involved moments to run over the sum of written piece, usually the fast summary can be improbable but the response bring lots more discuss systems, thanks a lot.

So if he had a 3-0 pitch called a ball, how did he then hit a home run on the next pitch. Is this the 5 balls and you go to first league?
