6/22: Zak Basch (01-02 MVP) Scott Robinson (01-02 MVP) "Chris Farley and Kevin Ool protected the lead for Smith and turned the game over to submarining Zak Basch in the ninth.

Robinson will first report to extended spring training at Kissamee, Fla., and then will be assigned to the Astros' Tri-City farm club in the Class A short-season New York-Penn League which begins play the third week of June."
