Andujar, Dixon Combine to Blank Bucs 2-0

Houston third baseman Enos Cabell went 2-for-5 and scored the game’s only two runs, and pitchers Joaquin Andujar and Tom Dixon combined on a 4-hit shutout, as the Astros took their second straight from the Pirates by a 2-0 count, earning a split of their four-game series at a rain-soaked Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh.

Cabell led off the game with a gap double off Buc starter Don Robinson (5-13); he advanced to third on a fly out to right by Jose Cruz, and scored when Robinson uncorked a wild pitch past catcher Ed Ott, handing the Astros a quick 1-0 lead. Two innings later, Cabell would strike again; after punching a base hit past Willie Stargell at first, he stole both second and third before jogging home on Terry Puhl’s line-drive single up the middle, rounding out the game’s scoring.
