Game Four: A Bitter Sweep Ending

The Astros’ attempt to win without scoring somehow fails

It's clear enough that God isn't going to get the 'Stros to the World Series. Whether the bats will is only a little less clear. Biggio spent Game 1, and all of the extra-inning marathon against the Braves, flailing at low-and-outside pitches that had everyone scratching their heads as to what exactly he thought was hittable about balls two feet outside the strike zone. He went 0 for 7 against the Braves and 0 for 3 against the Cards.

Lowlight of Game 1: "When we come back, it'll be the top of the ninth and the Astros will be sending Lane, Lamb and Everett to the plate."

Oddity of the television broadcast: the worm's-eye view of Fox's "Dirt-Cam," or whatever they're calling it. Because looking up into ballplayers' crotches adds so much to the game.

Question of the night: At what point in the evening does Cardinal manager Tony La Russa take off his sunglasses? He probably thought he looked like a rock star. Someone should tell him he looks like Grandpa with astigmatism.
