We got ourselves a rubber game!!! Pretty crazy game last night that ended with the Astros beating the Red Sox 11-10. The Astros are sending Brian Moehler to the hill who has been a very pleasant surprise since joining the rotation. As a starter this season, Moehler has a 4-3 record with a 3.58 ERA over 9 games started. his k/bb ratio is 32/14 and his WHIP is 1.277. Not too bad for a guy who was basically just used for mop up duties for the better part of his Astros career.

A win today would be a great confidence builder for the Astros and would be the 3rd straight series win for the Astros. It would also be nice to take a series against last seasons champions, and the team with the most wins in baseball(50).
