I'm still recovering from last night's game. The Wade boys (Dad included) watched the first 6 innings at a sports bar in Berkeley, CA, but Dad had to catch a flight back to TX, so we listened to the next few innings (including our run-without-a-hit in the 7th and the running-up-the-hill catch by Taveras to end the 8th) on the radio in the car....and then we had to go check in for our flights! Called a friend, who gave us the play-by-play, and listened (listened!) to the game-ending double play, which went something like this:
"Ok, Mabry's up...1st and 3rd, 1 out...man, how did Walker get to 3rd?....ground ball to 2nd! (10 second pause, possibly the longest of my life).....YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" *My phone dies*
Well, a win is a win is a win. It wasn't pretty, and we're now 2-for-31 with RISP, but we are ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE WORLD SERIES!
Pettitte vs. Carpenter in a rematch of Game 1 tonight. It's actually going on right now, so I'll have to write more later. Go Astros!
Oh, and a huge thanks to Sports Bloggers Live, who have an excellent interview with Craig Biggio right here. They asked us for a good question to ask Biggio, and...well, why don't you listen to the interview? A sneak preview: Andy came up with the question, and it involves Chris Burke.
