Astros are back in the series

I knew we weren't down and out when Burke tripled in the second inning, and his foot hit the bag rather than the glove. But is he going to carry this team singlehandedly?

Mulder walked Ausmus intentionally, and then Burke scores on a catcher error. Ausmus snags the steal for second, but to no avail.

Fast forward to the fifth inning. Ausmus doubles, a sacrifice sends him to third, and Biggio brings him home.

Bottom of the fifth, showdown between Oswalt and Edmunds. Guys on 1st and 2nd, full count. Oswalt strikes him out for three outs.

Sixth inning, Berkman gets a base hit on the first pitch. Edmunds' diving snag causes him to run from second base back to first for the first time in baseball history.

Pujols gets a home run in the bottom of the sixth to put the only run on the Cardinals' scoreboard.

Burke makes his first mistake ever in the seventh by undershooting a catch, Molina gets to second base by bouncing one over the fence. Ekstien flies out on a 2-2, inning over.

Eighth inning, Burke singles with two outs to send Berkman home for run 3. Sanders chokes with a tip off his glove for run 4.

Astros win it 4-1, evening the score for their dismal perfomance in game 1.

Looking forward to Game 3. See y'all there!


  • Help me Dude, I'm lost.

    I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

    No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

    He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

    But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

    Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

    And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

    "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on "

    Strange day or what? :-)
