Ronny Cedeno Triples After Signing With Astros 3/25/13
KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Ronny Cedeno tripled hours after signing with the
Houston Astros, who beat the Miami Marlins 4-1 Sunday in a game shortened to 4
1-2 innings because of rain.
Released by St. Louis on March 19, Cedeno agreed to a one-year deal with
Houston and immediately was inserted into the lineup at shortstop. He went 1 for
2, grounding into an inning-ending forceout in the second and tripling to right
in the fourth against Jacob Turner.
Brett Wallace hit his third homer, a two-run drive in the third.
Houston minor leaguer David Martinez allowed one run and eight hits in four
innings. Turner gave up four runs, five hits and four walks in 4 2-3 innings.
Miami's Greg Dobbs was 3 for 3 with a pair of doubles.
