The Houston Astros rose up for a come-from-behind 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in inter-league play last night in Houston, snapping Tampa Bay's six-game win streak.

The Rays scored first as Ben Zobrist doubled in Carl Crawford in the first inning. That lead held up until the third inning. Houston tied the game when Kevin Cash scored on a Jeff Keppinger single. Keppinger scored the winning run himself on Hunter Pence's single to center in the sixth and the Astros held on from there for the 2-1 win.

Matt Garza's 8 innings work went for naught, as he slipped to 5-2 for Tampa Bay. Brett Myers fanned seven in seven innings to get the win for Houston, he's now 3-3. Matt Lindstrom picked up his 10th save of the season.

The Rays are now 30-12 and lead the Yankees by four games in the A.L. East. Game two of their series in Houston is tonight at 7:05pm EDT on 620AM WDAE.

CONCORD, N.C. -- Polesitter Kyle Busch survived a scrape with the wall and held off Todd Bodine in a two-lap dash to the finish to win Friday night's North Carolina Education Lottery 200 Truck Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Busch, who owns the No. 18 Toyota he drove to victory, crossed the finish line .228 seconds ahead of Bodine to give Toyota its first truck series victory at the 1.5-mile racetrack. Ron Hornaday was third, followed by James Buescher and Elliott Sadler.

Rain washed out yesterday's qualifying for the Nascar Showdown at Charlotte. As a result, the starting lineup for the 40-lap Showdown was set by qualifying order. David Ragan was the big winner, as he will start on the pole instead of 12th where he was after 25 drivers. Max Papis is on the outside of the front row with Sam Hornish Jr. and Kevin Conway starting in Row 2.

The big loser was Juan Montoya who was the fastest of the 25 drivers, he will start 14th on Saturday. Jeff Burton was second after 25 cars and will now start 17th.

Carl Edwards was on the track when the rain started and will roll off 26th.

The Showdown pushes away from the starting line tonight at 7:30pm EDT, with the Nascar All-Star Race to follow at 9:00pm. They can be seen on the Speed Network and heard on MRN Radio.
