Jeff Kent hit a home run in his first at-bat for Houston and Jeff Bagwell homered twice as the Astros won their season opener last night, 10-4 over the visiting Colorado Rockies. Roy Oswalt pitched seven strong innings for the win and the Astros roughed up NL Rookie of the Year Jason Jennings in their first home opener since their stadium was renamed Minute Maid Park. Kent, the 2000 NL MVP, helped lead San Francisco to the World Series last year. He signed an $18.2 million, 2-year contract with the Astros in the offseason, joining Bagwell and Lance Berkman in the middle of a powerful lineup.

The San Francisco Giants fan who caught Barry Bonds' 700th homer is being sued by another man who says he was the rightful owner of the prized ball, which he maintains was stolen from him during a mad scramble. According to a restraining order to be filed in state court today, Timothy Murphy said Steve Williams stole the historic blast from him during a melee in the left-centerfield bleachers at SBC Park on Sept. 17. Williams said in an interview that he did not steal the ball, but found it at the bottom of the heap of people.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington says he's put behind him Roy Oswalt's decision not to pitch a third inning of relief and sees no need to discuss it with the former starter. Oswalt told Washington after throwing 30 pitches in the seventh and eighth innings Sunday that he couldn't continue. The Rangers lost, 7-6, in 10 innings at Kansas City. "Since I've been here [if] a player tells me he can't go, that's it," Washington said before Monday night's game against the Red Sox in Boston.

THE DAYS until spring training continue to dwindle and Roy Oswalt remains without a team. The former Phillies righthander rebuffed interest from the Detroit Tigers, according to CBSSports.com. The report said the Tigers even had American League MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander call Oswalt. Reports have circulated for weeks that Oswalt will land with Boston, but that the Red Sox first needed to clear salary. Boston traded Marco Scutaro and his $6 million salary to Colorado for pitcher Clayton Mortensen.

WASHINGTON - Without saying it, Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee made it clear Tuesday that Roy Halladay will pitch Game 1 in the postseason against an opponent to be determined. It now appears as if Roy Oswalt will follow Halladay to the mound for Game 2 of the first-round playoff series. "It's going to be Oswalt in Game 2, you can bet on it," a baseball source said. Manager Charlie Manuel confirmed that Oswalt more than likely pitched his final regular-season game Tuesday against Washington when he worked five innings without allowing an earned run. The baseball source said lefthander Cole Hamels would pitch Sunday in the Phillies' season finale in Atlanta.

The Chicago Cubs and shortstop Starlin Castro have agreed to a seven-year contract with a club option for 2020. The 22-year-old Castro is a two-time all-star and in just his second full major-league season. He led the National League in hits with 207 last season. Since making his major-league debut on May 7, 2010, Castro has more hits than any player in the NL with 486. Castro, a career .296 hitter, was batting .276 this season with 12 homers and 63 RBIs before Tuesday night's game against Milwaukee.

July 30, 2010 | What the zealots refused to acknowledge, though, was that there was also a plausible rationale for doing what general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. did. Whether they agreed with it was a separate issue, but the reality is that it was right in line with the organizational philosophy of not getting too far out over its skis
IT'S ALL RIGHT to be unhappy with the trade that sent Cliff Lee packing last December. There were good, sound arguments for pairing him with Roy Halladay at the top of the Phillies rotation and going all in to try to win a second world championship in 3 years. What the zealots refused to acknowledge, though, was that there was also a plausible rationale for doing what general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. did. Whether they agreed with it was a separate issue, but the reality is that it was right in line with the organizational philosophy of not getting too far out over its skis.

FIRST, THE former teammates exchanged texts. Then there was a late-night phone call. Brad Lidge was giving whole new meaning to the concept of being the Phillies' closer, explaining to Astros ace righthander Roy Oswalt why he should waive his no-trade clause and join the defending National League champions. "I think the Phillies sell themselves right now," he said yesterday after the megadeal was announced. "When I knew how serious he was, I was like, 'You've got to go for it, buddy.

J.A. Happ never thought he had it made. Not at age 27 with a little more than a year of big-league service time coming into the season. Not after a slow but steady climb up the Phillies' minor league ladder that included spending all, or significant parts, of five seasons in the bushes. Still, he did go 12-4 last season with a 2.93 earned run average, finished as the runner-up in the National League Rookie of the Year voting, and was penciled into the starting rotation at the beginning of spring training.

THE PHILLIES will return seven of eight position players - once Ryan Howard recovers - and four of their five starters from last season. But that does not mean the team has not undergone important changes this offseason - the bench and the bullpen have been substantially overhauled. Beginning today, the Daily News will provide snapshots of the key Phillies newcomers as the days until spring training continue to dwindle.. The Phillies also have a large pool of players invited to spring training but not on the 40-man roster who could win jobs - outfielder Juan Pierre and righthander Joel Pineiro among them.
