After Game 1, the Astros couldn't have hoped for anything better than what they have right now, although as commanding as a 3-1 series lead can be, a loss today puts Houston right back in the same position they were in a year ago, when they dropped Games 6 & 7 in St. Louis.

Of course, instead of having Backe/Munro/Clemens scheduled as the remaining starters, this year's Astros have Pettitte/Oswalt/Clemens, which makes things a hell of a lot easier.

Minute Maid is going to be rocking tonight.
