It's All Pena
SAN FRANCISCO-In a heated battle vs the #2 team in the NL west, The Astros Slugger (and Rumor has it soon to be captain)Wily Mo Pena hit 3 Home runs making his total this year to 37. But that's not all, he also went 4-5 and he had 7 RBI's which helped the Astros go on and win the game 9-2(he scored himself four times, his other hit was a double.)
"I don't know what it is about Houston, but ever sense I joined this team, I have been very comfortable and I just fall right in place with this teams chemistry and the atmosphere back home in Houston is alsome. That ballpark, it's amazing how loud those fan's can get!, and if I didn't come back to the NL, I might have never hit a splash hit, and with the Astros, like I did today." -Pena
