Well, we lost... It's sad to see that we lost, but in all honestly... this was a game I kind of expected that we would lose. Brandon Webb is and has been one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last few seasons and it showed tonight as he went 8 innings and only allowed 2 runs. While listening to the first few innings of the game on the radio today, Dave Raymond(it could have been Brett Dolan... I always get them mixed up) said that Brandon Web has NEVER given up more than 3 runs in a SEASON to the Astros. That's a pretty crazy stat.

LIke I said before... so we lost... Even the biggest optimist towards the Astros season never expected us to win every game from here on out. We just have to avoid anything close to a losing streak and hopefully we'll come out on top.

The Astros only managed 5 hits tonight, and 3 of them came off the bat of Ty Wigginton(including a 6th inning home run).

That's about all I have to say about this game....
