For the Astros, Andrew Poyant hit the ball well and Chris Gattineri played solid defense behind the plate. The Braves were led by some timely hits by Vinny Demirev while Tommy Roofe and Benji Hebert provided the power with extra base hits that cleared the bases. In the field, David Collins stopped everything hit his way, and his teammates Sean Witalisz and Thomas McGagh did their best to prevent the Astros from getting on base.
