This Date in Astros History

Jan 19, 1971:Two former Houston first round draft choices are born on this day. Infielder Phil Nevin is born in Fullerton, CA. The first pick overall in the 1992 June draft, Nevin tries management's patience before being traded to Detroit. Pitcher Jeff Juden is born in Salem, MA. The 6-8 righthander is the 12th overall pick in the 1989 draft but would record just a 0-3 record before being dealt.
Mar 5, 1993:The first game in the Florida Marlins' history is a 12-8 pasting of the Astros in the Cocoa, FL park that was the spring home to the Astros for 21 years. Five-run outbursts in the second and fifth innings get the expansion franchise off in style. Phil Nevin belts two triples in his first game as an Astro.
Jul 4, 1995:Craig Biggio slams two home runs and Jeff Bagwell drives in five during a 16-8 donnybrook at Colorado. Biggio scores five times, setting a club record that still stands. He also steals a base and drives in three. Derrick May and Phil Nevin contribute three hits apiece.
