Game Fourteen vs Brewers, 7:05 CST

You think everything is 
a joke, don't you, Oswalt?


Doug Davis   Roy Oswalt
0 - 0, 4.76    2 - 0, 1.99

Brewers, Part Two, in which we attempt to lay the serious smackdown with Roy Oz on the hill. But first, a couple notes about what has transpired so far:

a) Morgan Ensberg is now second among qualified National Leaguers in hitting, one of only three players in the senior circuit at this late date still over .400. League OPS among regulars looks like this:
   1: Pujols
   2: Ensberg
   3: Dunn
   4: Berkman

b) Adam Everett is now tied for fourth among NL shortstops with eight RBI.

c) Nieve and Buchholz are the first Astros pitchers to make their first starts on consecutive days since, well, before there WERE Astros. On September 26, 1963 manager Grady Hatton of the Colt .45's started rookie Larry Yellen, and that went so well, he started an entire lineup of rookies the following day, headed by doomed pitcher Jay Dahl.

d) Don't wanna beat a dead horse, but just had a couple more words about Preston Wilson's performance last night. Let's do it multimedia style:

Roy tries for career win number 86 against Doug Davis tonight. Davis is 3 - 7 lifetime against the 'Stros, while holding a 3.94 ERA. The Astros have hit .240 against him. Meanwhile Roy is 6 - 3 against the fellows from Milwaukee, with a 3.30. The Brewers hit .251 off him. Jenkins OPSes .954 off Oswalt in 34 AB, Bill Hall .870 in 23.

Berkman is 10 for 27 off Davis with two homers and two doubles, Biggio 11 for 38 with 2 doubles and a jack. Roy Oswalt is 2 for 6 off Davis, Lamb 2 for 5.

Last May 27, the two squared off at Milwaukee, with Davis giving up 2 hits over seven innings to gain the decision as Oswalt dropped to a season-low 5 - 6.
