Houston wins and goes on to play St. Louis
Sunday, October 09, 2005

18 innings. 5 hours and 50 minutes. 14 pitchers. 553 pitches.

The Astros were down 6-1 going into the 8th when Lance Berkman hit a grand slam - the second of the game which is a record in a postseason game - and brought it to 6-5. In the ninth, Brad Ausmus hit a solo shot to tie it 6-6. The relievers do an amazing job shutting down the opposing team - innings 10-18 only 6 hits allowed.

Houston eventually ran out of relief pitchers and called on Clemens to come in and finish the game. He goes 3 innings with 4 K's while allowing 1 hit and ends up the winning pitcher. Chris Burke hits a solo shot in the 18th to win the game and the Astros advance. Simply incredible and the reason why I especially love the postseason baseball games.
