Astros VS Snakes
Wandy VS Owings
Micah Owings Wandy Rodriguez
2 - 1, 4.96 2 - 3, 3.99

Your home town Houston Astros have now lost 6 of the last 7 games scoring an average of just over 2 runs a game and 4 runs in the last 4 games. Wow... That really sucks... especially when you take into consideration that they have given up 41 runs, or just under 6 runs a game.

The Astros send their "Magic" Wandy to the hill tonight to try and put an end to their latest 4 game losing streak. Luckily for the Astros, everyone in the NL Central pretty much sucks(except the Brewers) and they still sit in 2nd place(with the Cubs).

Palmeiro? Why? The .133 batting average is just too good to pass up? That to go with Everett's massive .195 batting average. Tonight could be a big offensive night! Needless to say, I'm not too excited about tonight. We're facing a young pitcher with a pretty high ERA, so it would seem like we could at least have a chance to score runs... then again, we have 5 batters in the lineup hitting .250 or worse and 3 hitting less than .200. I want to go to bed now...
