Parra stifles Astros, 5-1
Mike Cameron and Ryan Braun hit back-to-back solo homers in the bottom of the first Friday night. And that would be enough for Manny Parra and the Brewers to take the first game of the series.
The Astros' Hunter Pence scored the lone Astros' run in the top of the 2nd after doubling; Parra scattered three more hits over a total of 6 innings, fanning 6 and walking 4, before handing over to the pen. Carlos Villanueva and Guillermo Mota continued the mound domination, while Prince Fielder crushed a 2-run shot in the 5th inning to provide wiggle room for the pen.
