Jun 25, 1995:Houston erupts for a team-record 19 runs, destroying the Cubs in a 19-6 laugher at the Dome. You might expect Jeff Bagwell to be at the center of this and he is, driving in five including a three-run blast in the seventh. But John Cangelosi?

May 24, 1996:Houston rallies for an 8-7 victory over the Cubs in the ten innings. Craig Biggio belts a two-run two-out homer in the bottom of the ninth off Turk Wendell before Sean Berry ties it. John Cangelosi singles home Ricky Gutierrez the next inning to win it. Todd Jones picks up the victory.

Jun 30, 1996:John Cangelosi is the sparkplug in a 9-3 triumph over the Mets. He gets two hits, walks twice, drives in three and steals three bases to pace the Houston attack. Everyone in the lineup gets at least one hit, including Darryl Kile who notches his seventh win in a complete-game performance.
