This Date in Astros History

Feb 14, 1951:Larry Milbourne is born in Port Norris, NJ. The reserve infielder hits .245 during three seasons in Houston (1974-1976) and manages to last another nine years in the majors. It's interesting to note that someone nicknamed "The Devil" was born on St. Valentine's Day.
Jul 26, 1974:Larry Milbourne scores in the 11th on a fielder's choice to give Houston an 8-7 triumph over Los Angeles. Roger Metzger has three hits and raps into the game-winner when the throw home by Davey Lopes is late. Cesar Cedeno socks two home runs and drives in four. His 79 RBIs lead the league while his 21 home runs are just one shy of ex-teammate Jim Wynn for the top spot in that category.
Aug 24, 1974:Dave Roberts one-hits the Phillies, 1-0, in the quickest game in club history . Bob Boone's leadoff single in the sixth is all that separates Roberts from perfection in a game that takes only one hour and 26 minutes to complete. Roberts needs just 86 pitches. Roger Metzger singles off Steve Carlton, plating Larry Milbourne in the eighth for the only tally.
Apr 21, 1976:Jose Cruz ends a numbing 1-0 victory over the Dodgers in the 16th inning. Cruz singles off Stan Wall to score Larry Milbourne for the game's only run. Mike Barlow tosses one inning for the win after J.R. Richard pitched for ten and Ken Forsch threw for five.
Mar 30, 1977:Jeriome Robertson is born in San Jose, CA. The lefty leads the Astros in wins during his rookie season, posting a 15-9 record in 2003, despite a 5.10 ERA. Also on this day, infielder Larry Milbourne is dealt to Seattle for pitcher Roy Thomas.
