 FRISCO, Texas (AP) -Astros right-hander Brad Lidge threw a perfect inning in a rehab outing for Double-A Corpus Christi on Wednesday night.
Lidge, who has been on the disabled list since June 20 with a strained left oblique, threw eight pitches in the first inning against Frisco. He induced a popup and two flyouts.
Texas first baseman Mark Teixeira was batting fourth for Frisco and did not face Lidge. Teixeira has been on the disabled list since June 9 with a strained left quadriceps muscle.
``It hasn't been a lot of fun for me,'' Lidge said before the game. ``It's the first time I've been on the DL. With the oblique injury, you have to be really careful with it. It's been tough to be patient.''
While trying to recover from the oblique injury, he suffered a minor right knee injury that slowed his recovery. But Lidge threw a bullpen session Sunday in Houston and pitched Wednesday night with a knee brace.
Lidge said he expects to rejoin Houston for Friday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Lidge is 2-1 with a 2.34 ERA in 34 appearances with the Astros this season. He had regained his closer's job before the injury after losing it in the first week of the season.
