A rain shortened win last night moved the Astros within seven of the Wild Card leading Brewers, who had a little more on their minds than just a 6-3 loss to the Reds. Seven games isn't impossible to make up, but the odds are not with the Astros. A win today would be nice, as playing spoiler is what we have to look forward to. Here's a fun game we can play: with K happy Rich Harden on the mound for the Cubs, and a K prone team like the Astros facing him, what should the over/under be for strikeouts today? I'm going to set it at 9.
