Brad Lidge picked up his first save of the season tonight as the Astros defeated the Nationals Tuesday night 4-2. The Astros snapped a 4 game losing and they looked a lot better tonight. Hunter Pence had a homerun in this game and Biggio came off the bench as a pinch hinter with a sacrafice fly RBI to help push the Astros ahead. The Astros were able to hold their lead, and despite a 2 out walk by Brad Lidge in the bottom of the 9th he was still able to pick up his first save of the season and the Astros get their first win since the all star break.
