Jul 3, 1994:Ken Caminiti slugs an inside-the-park homer while Craig Biggio and James Mouton belt the traditional kind as the Astros trap the Cubs, 12-6. Caminiti and Biggio are named to the N.L. All-Star team along with Jeff Bagwell, Doug Drabek and John Hudek (none as starters) to total a club-record five All-Stars in one season.
May 20, 1995:Jeff Shaw walks home Craig Biggio with the winning run in the tenth as Houston nips the Expos, 2-1. Pinch-hitter Dave Magadan takes ball four to end the game. John Hudek picks up the win.
May 27, 1995:James Mouton sends the Astrodome fans home happy with a tenth-inning homer off Mike Stanton to stun the Braves, 3-2. John Hudek picks up the victory.
Sep 25, 1996:Mike Simms drives in the winning run with a single in the tenth to upend the Mets, 5-4. John Hudek gets the win. The victory snaps a nine-game losing skid that pushes Houston out of the N.L. Central race.
Jul 12, 1997:Pittsburgh's Francisco Cordova and Ricardo Rincon team to no-hit the Astros, 3-0, in ten innings. Cordova is flawless through the first nine, but Chris Holt and Billy Wagner shut down the Pirates. After a perfect tenth from Rincon, John Hudek walks two then surrenders a three-run blast to Mark Smith.
Dec 22, 1997:Reliever John Hudek is traded to the New York Mets for outfielder Carl Everett. The righthander comes from nowhere to make the All-Star team in 1994 but returns to reality, leaving Houston with a 5-7 record and 29 saves over four injury-plagued seasons.
