This Date in Astros History

Jul 18, 1969:Back for the first time in over a month after an on-field collision with teammate Hector Torres put him in a hospital, Jesus Alou starts a four-run ninth-inning rally that topples the Reds, 7-4. Alou scores the tying run on a double by Sandy Valdespino then Joe Morgan plates Johnny Edwards with a squueze bunt for the game-winner.
Oct 12, 1970:Astros deal shortstop Hector Torres to the Chicago Cubs for shortstop Roger Metzger. Though denied by both sides, many suspect the trade is compensation for the Cubs' mid-season acquisition of Joe Pepitone. The slick-fielding Torres bats .218 over three seasons with the Astros. Metzger, a former first-round choice from Fredericksberg, TX, mans the Astro infield for eight years.
Aug 17, 1972:Lee May belts four hits, a three-run blast among them, and drives in five to lead a 17-5 slaughter in Montreal. Cesar Cedeno homers and drives in four. The Expos take such a beating that Gene Mauch sends in former Astro shortstop Hector Torres to pitch the ninth. It is Torres' first pitching performance since the Mexican Little Leagues. He surrenders six straight hits before getting the last two outs.
Oct 23, 1973:Astros trade shortstop Hector Torres and purchase shortstop Mick Kelleher in separate deals. Torres, a one-time starter, hits just .091 in his second stay with the Astros. Kelleher bats .158 in his one-year layover from St. Louis.
