Roy Oswalt's first start after returning from the disabled list was a success, as he outpitched Greg Maddux and led the Astros to a victory at Wrigley Field. Houston never trailed after a three-run rally in the second inning, and Craig Biggio contributed a pair of RBI singles to lead the offensive charge.
