This Date in Astros History

Sep 30, 1979:Joe Niekro becomes the first 21-game winner in club history with a 3-2 triumph over the Dodgers. An eighth-inning sacrifice fly by Danny Heep plates the game-winner. The Astros finish with a best-to-date 89 wins but fall 1-1/2 games short of Cincinnati for the N.L. West title.
Aug 19, 1982:On most nights, handing Philly's Steve Carlton six runs is like giving Tiger Woods a ten handicap but Houston rallies to tie this one, 6-6, to go into extra innings. Danny Heep slides past Bo Diaz with the winning run in the 11th on Denny Walling's single.
Dec 10, 1982:The big news in Houston is the free agent signing of outfielder Omar Moreno from Pittsburgh. Little noticed is a second deal sending first baseman Danny Heep to the New York Mets for pitcher Mike Scott. The righthander brings a 14-27 record with him from New York.
May 9, 1983:Phil Garner scores the winning run while ex-Astro Danny Heep argues the call of first base ump Terry Tata in a 6-4 victory over the New York Mets. Tata had ruled that Jose Cruz beat Heep to the bag on a roller to first. Nobody calls for time and Garner alertly speeds home. Garner's double off the third base bag had scored Omar Moreno and Dickie Thon to set up the go-ahead moment.
Jul 11, 1985:Nolan Ryan fans Danny Heep in the sixth inning to become the first player to reach 4,000 career strikeouts. Kevin Bass homers in the frame to give the Astros a 3-1 lead but miscues later let the Mets tie it. Bill Doran's fifth hit of the game, in the 12th, scores Dickie Thon for a 4-3 Houston victory.
