Jeff Francis made one mistake pitching to the Houston Astros: a 2-run homer in the 6th. In the 5th, he had gotten out of trouble with no outs and men on 2nd and 3rd, by getting 2 strikeouts and a pop-up.
Roy Oswalt pitched a complete 9-inning shutout, giving up only 1 hit and 2 walks. He looked great all night.
The Dodgers beat the D'backs to rise to first place by half a game. They play again tomorrow.
