The Astros take 3 of 4 from a slumping Washington Nationals team. We're really looking good at the moment. Andy and I watched every pitch from yesterday's 14 inning 4-1 win, capped by Eric Bruntlett's 3 run HR. Our pitching staff is pretty good right now: Qualls, Wheeler, Springer, and Lidge combined to pitch 7 IP in relief, allowing 1 H, 1 BB, 0 ER, and striking out 9. Oh, and Wandy Rodriguez looked tough, putting up a 7 IP / 3 H / 1 BB / 1 ER / 4 K line. Next up: the Phillies @ Minute Maid, who are a half-game in front of us in the wild-card race. The pitching matchups:

Pettitte vs. Lidle
Oswalt vs. Lieber
Clemens vs. Padilla

Wow! I'll be watching.
