Astros pitcher Wade Miller notices the practice ball when warming up and informs ump Mark Hirschback who rules that the practice balls must be used in the bottom of the 1st before switching. Reds starter Wade Miller served up a homer in the 1st to Lance Berkman who hits another in his next at bat good for 5 RBIs. He leads the NL with 74 ribbies. The Astros win in the 10th 6-5.
