Johnson returns to Houston
HOUSTON -- Third baseman Chris Johnson, who spent all of his career with the Astros before being traded to the D-backs on July 29, got a little lost when trying to find the visitor's clubhouse at Minute Maid Park.

"I got to the home locker room and was just like, 'All right, well, anything after this is new,'" Johnson said. "It's pretty fun. It's good to see the guys, but have to take care of business too. It's strange."

Johnson said he was feeling a wide range of emotions, especially considering that he's officially moved to Phoenix.

"I'm excited. I'm nervous," Johnson said. "It's just all part of the trade. This is kind of the last step - -- playing in front of your ex-home crowd. Once we get rid of this, that's it."

Johnson entered Friday's game batting .265 with five homers and 18 RBIs in 15 games as a D-back.
