The Bucs whipped the 'Stros last night, 10-1.

Francisco Cordova brought a no-hitter into the ninth and Brian Giles was 5-5 with 2 HRs and a triple. He's hitting .727, with an OBP of .769 and SLG 1.545 !!

Cordova combined with another pitcher (Ricardo Rincon) for a no-hitter against Houston in '97. He does VERY well against them. He's now 4-0 against them with an ERA of 2.12 since 1997. I guess he is to the Astros what Chuck Finley has been to the Yankees.

That team's going to be the surprise of the NL central.

Best GoYanks!
