HOUSTON (AP) - J.D. Martinez homered and drove in three runs and the National League's youngest team, the Houston Astros, beat baseball's oldest player, 49-year-old Jamie Moyer, and the Colorado Rockies 7-3 Saturday night.
Jordan Schafer took it deep leading off for the Astros and Martinez's two-run shot in the fourth made it 3-0.
With gray stubble covering his chin and hair of the same color peeking out the edge of his cap, Moyer (0-1) become the oldest player to appear in a game since 1980, when 54-year-old Minnie Minoso played in a game for the White Sox, according to statistics provided by the Rockies from the Elias Sports bureau.
