June 3: Houston 10, Toronto 9 (11 innings)

EIGHT different players homered in the game, four per squad.

Early season surprise sensation Doyle Alexander had his second straight rough start, and tumbled out of his familiar spot in the top 10 ERAs.

Billy Wagner blew Houston’s two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. Roberto Alomar and Fred McGriff singled, then Wagner lost the strike zone. He walked Delgado to load the bases, then hit Shawn Green to drive in a run, and walked Tony Fernandez to force in the tying run. Brad Lidge relieved Wagner and managed to keep the game tied.

The Houston hitters scraped together the winning run in the top of the 11th on a Dickie Thon single, walks by Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell, and an RBI ground-out by Moises Alou.

Carlos Delgado homered in all three games in the series to tie Lou Gehrig for most dingers in the league at 14.
