The Astros have won 3 in a row to lead the Cards 3-2 in the NLCS. Last night the game was scoreless until the bottom of the 9th, when Jeff Kent hit a walkoff 3 run homer.
There was talk about Clemens taking the mound for Game 6, but manager Phil Garner decided to give the nod to Pete Munro.
A wise move. Pitchers throw much much better on an extra day of rest. Clemens is over 40 years old, so the extra day of rest will be good for him. If the Astros win game 6, then Clemens can start Game 1 of the Series. And if they lose game 6, is there anyone you'd rather have on the mound for game 7?
