I was so excited watching the 'Stros mount their comeback. Like John, I didn't think STL would be able to do anything. Then a couple of baserunner's later I started to worry a bit.
Then the commentators start talking (like they always do, just shut the **** up so I can watch the game without your ******* rambling!!), the mentioned giving Pujols a diet of sliders. What the hell!!!! You can't go up there and throw the same pitch every time. The hitter will get his timing down and then hit a majestic blast, just like Pujols did. Lidge needed to throw slider, fastball, then changeup on consecutive pitches to throw off the hitter's timing.
But the Astros are throwing Oswalt tomorrow and Clemens on Thursday, so there is still hope to see a World Series game in Texas. Too bad it's not my Rangers.
