G73: We lose to the Astros in 10 innings, 3-2

Rod Barajas won his job when Gerald Laird suffered an injury early in the 2004 season. Rod Barajas had to leave this game with an injury, does that mean that Gerald Laird will get his job back? We’ll see..
Chan Ho Park pitched pretty decently (7IP, 5H, 2ER), but we wasted it, when we lost 3-2 in 10 innings. Andy Pettite pitched like the Pettite of old, going 9 innings, 7H, 2R (1ER), and basically outdueled Park. Kameron Loe kept us in it, by not giving up any run in his two innings, but Juan Dominguez came in and immediately walked two, and gave up the winning run. Annoying, given how poorly we’ve been playing lately, and given the slide we’ve gone into. We need all the wins we can get if we’re going to tread water long enough to stay in the playoff race. Granted, the season isn’t half over yet, but it feels somewhat dismal at the moment.
Probably might have something to do with the disappearance of our starting rotation (released, waived, punched a wall).
