Game Hero, 73 - 78

Roger Clemens
  • W, 7 - 5, Number 348 career
  • 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 6 K, 3 BB
  • Ninth start (of 17) where the Rocket gives up one earned run or less
  • 69 Game Score
  • Eleventh Quality Start

May be Luke IS hot enough to melt your flip flops, after all, but no matter: today is all about the Rocket--from my lovefest pregame to the standing O he got after being removed from his very last home start.

As onfire as triples in three straight games might be, Luke will have other chances to be the Homestanding Game Hero.

Roger won't, and shit, it's not like 6 innings of 3-hit shutout ball make the award a handout.

If there were any doubts about the overwhelmingly positive Clemens karma this day that six baserunners in six innings didn't dispel, I'm sure that his fourth career double for the Astros, to go with two flawless sacs disintegrated all traces of them.

The Standing O and the Game Hero are both well earned.
