A better day for baseball
Saturday, October 01, 2005
Today was much better for my baseball world. Clemens, while not near his best, pitched well for the Astros (7 innings, 1 run, 5 K's) who defeated the Cubs 3-1. The Phillies won as well, which means the Astros are still 1 game up on the Wild Card spot and will need to either win tomorrow (or have the Phillies lose) to win the Wild Card spot. If they lose and the Phillies win, they go to play the Phillies in a 1 game tie-breaker. Oswalt pitches for Houston tomorrow looking for his 20th win this year so things look good for them.

The Yankees won today as well and won their 8th straigth AL East title. They hit Wakefield pretty hard and won 8-4. Boston is now in the same situation as Houston with the Cleveland Indians. If Boston takes the Wild Card, which will probably happen, the Yankees will face the Angels in the first round of the playoffs. I really hope that it doesn't turn out to be like the 2002 divisional series where the Angels killed the Yankees (and the famous "Go Home Yankees" chant).

Tomorrow I'm saying goodbye to Houston (Minute Maid Park is AWESOME) and heading to Orlando where I hope I can make it to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween night. =)

On a side note, I saw a guy today with a t-shirt that read "I Got Punk'd by Rita" at the game. Rachel and I had a good laugh at that and she admitted that she too had gotten "Punk'd by Rita".
