This Date in Astros History

Nov 29, 1971:Astros deal infielders Joe Morgan and Denis Menke, outfielders Cesar Geronimo and Ed Armbrister, and pitcher Jack Billingham to Cincinnati for infielders Lee May, Tommy Helms and Jimmy Stewart in what would be the defining moment of Spec Richardson's tenure as General Manager. Morgan, Geronimo and Billingham would play major roles in two Worlds Championships. May and Helms have productive but not spectacular runs in Houston while Stewart, a utilityman, would bat .207 over two seasons.
May 10, 1972:Pencil-thin shortstop Roger Metzger belts his first major-league homer to spark a six-run eighth-inning rally that shocks the Cardinals, 10-7. The shot comes off Hall-Of-Famer Bob Gibson. Pinch-hitter Jimmy Stewart's two-run triple gives Houston the lead. Lee May caps a four-hit night with a ninth-inning blast. Houston leads the NL West by a game over Los Angeles.
