Fields notches first win in Tuesday's comeback

HOUSTON -- Josh Fields picked up his first Major League win on Tuesday, working a scoreless ninth inning in the Astros' 5-4 comeback victory over the A's.

Fields said the night was memorable for several reasons, not simply for his first big league W.

"It was pretty awesome, obviously for the first win, but more than that I was pumped for our team coming back last night and getting that win," Fields said. "We've been struggling a little bit lately, and it was nice to come back with a win like that.

"What was also awesome was [Jarred] Cosart having an unbelievable start, his first start here at home in Houston. And [Jonathan] Villar, second game up, coming up big. I thought that was pretty big what he did against [Grant] Balfour, a proven closer who's having a great year."

In his second big league start, Cosart went seven strong innings, while Villar tallied three hits and sprinted home from second base with the winning run on a botched pickoff attempt.
