Jun 16, 1967:Minutes before the trade deadline expires, Houston ships closer Claude Raymond to Atlanta for pitcher Wade Blasingame. Less than 24 hours later, Raymond saves a 9-8 decision over the Astros. Jim Wynn homers again, his seventh long ball in the past week.
Jul 5, 1968:Ex-Brave Denis Menke tags ex-Astro Claude Raymond with a three-run bomb in the ninth to topple Atlanta, 13-9. Doug Rader follows with a solo shot. John Bateman and Rusty Staub had earlier home runs. Another former Brave, Wade Blasingame, shuts the door in the ninth.
May 26, 1971:In the opener of a doubleheader in San Diego, Al Santorini starts against an Astro lineup stacked with seven lefty hitters. Santorini gets the first out and is yanked for lefty Dave Roberts. Houston wins, 2-1, behind Wade Blasingame. Santorini returns to start the nightcap, tossing six innings, but Larry Dierker bests him in an 8-0 one-hitter. The lone Padre hit was a broken-bat single by Ollie Brown in the seventh.
