KISSIMMEE, FLA. (AP) - Houston’s Mike Hampton had his best outing of the spring on Friday.

He looked good and, perhaps more importantly, he felt good.

Hampton allowed three hits in four scoreless innings while striking out four as the Astros and Washington Nationals played to a 2-2 tie in 10 innings.

The injury-plagued lefty missed all of 2006 and 2007 and was limited to just 13 games last season because of various injuries, but is hoping to revive his career in his return to Houston, where he won 22 games in 1999.

The 36-year-old had allowed six runs combined in his two previous outings.
