Wright had to take the mound in the second inning of Houston's 11-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs after Astros ace Roy Oswalt hurt his lower back.

Oswalt returned today to Houston, where he's to be examined by a back specialist.

Wright allowed three runs in 2 1/3 innings and got his first career hit before he had to be rushed to Northwestern Hospital in Chicago. Team officials originally thought he might have had appendicitis because he had complained of discomfort in that area of his body.

Also Wednesday, the Astros made two roster moves, activating right-handed reliever Doug Brocail from the DL and sending infielder Edwin Maysonet to Triple-A Round Rock.

Brocail replaces LaTroy Hawkins, who went on the DL Tuesday with shingles. Maysonet was sent down to make room for right-hander Bud Norris, who was called up after Tuesday's game.
