Bagwell homers twice to reach milestone
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jeff Bagwell is just happy his milestone homer came in a victory.
Bagwell homered twice to become the 35th member of the 400-homer club while leading the Houston Astros to a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
"I'm glad I got it over with," Bagwell said. "More important, I'm just glad that we won. It just means that I've played a long time."
Bagwell, who's in his 13th season, drove in Houston's first four runs as the NL Central-leading Astros beat Cincinnati for the 10th straight time. The Astros completed their eighth series sweep of the season. They have won 10 of their last 11 games.
