Clutch City! Bring on the Cards!

The Houston Astros win their first series!

Yeah, the franchise is 43 years old, but it's still sweet. It was the deciding game, the Braves had narrowed the game to a 1 run lead...and then the Astros scored 9 consecutive runs.

The Killer B's -- Beltran, Bagwell, Biggio and Berkman -- were all clutch. Beltran had 5 RBIs and homered on two consecutive at bats.

I'm not much of a baseball fan, but it's exciting to see the Astros play the Cards. The Astros are really a feel good story right now -- written off for dead, they ended the season 36-10 to squeak into the playoffs.

And the Yankees are playing the RedSox. That's an intense rivalry. Having been to Boston around the beginning of the season, it was amazing to me how intensely Bostonians loved their RedSox.
