Jan 8, 1977:David Matranga is born in Orange, CA. The injury call-up is 1-for-5 in his big league career but he is only the second Astro to homer in his first major league at bat.
Jun 27, 2003:Infielder Dave Matranga homers in his first big league at bat as part of a four-homer assault, but it isn't enough as the Texas Rangers stop the Astros, 10-7, at Minute Maid Park. Lance Berkman, Morgan Ensberg and Jeff Bagwell also go yard but the bullpen isn't up to the task of replacing rookie starter Rodrigo Rosario after he leaves with a shoulder strain in the second inning.
