Clearly, the Cubs had their chances. And Woody--though he pitched a gutsy game--only went 6 innings. Yet there were no real strong alternative candidates from the offensive side. No Astro had more than 1 RBI, no Astro had more than one run scored. The club's leader in total bases went 1 for 4 and was one of only two Astros who left a runner in scoring position.

Lee had two hits, including a double, and drew a walk besides, but he didn't score, and only drove in the one.

So I'm conflicted, but I'm gonna go with Woody anyway, more for what they call the intangibles.

Tuesday's game was the fourth straight in which the Astros did not record a double play. The last time the Stros recorded one was the first game of the Marlins series.

We did of course homer in a tenth straight game, and outhomered the opponent, with the predictable result.
