Berkman, Tejada milestones get Houston past Arizona

BY foxsports • June 14, 2009

Moments after Miguel Tejada tied it with his 2,000th hit, Lance Berkman put the Houston Astros ahead with his 300th homer.

The milestones were all the sweeter because the Astros held on for a 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night after nearly blowing a late five-run lead.

"It's always good when you can win the game after you do something like that," said Houston manager Cecil Cooper, who had 2,192 hits and 241 homers in a 17-year career. "It's pretty incredible. It shows that they've been real successful for a long time. Not many guys get to get there."
