  • #5 GDT: Astros (85-71) @ Cards (97-60) - 7:10 p.m.

    Gotta even my record for this year. Go Birds.


    Originally posted by MLB.com
    The final regular-season homestand at the current Busch Stadium gets started Tuesday night. And though the Cardinals can't change their playoff position in any way, it's still a significant game. The Astros are trying to nail down their second straight Wild Card and third in four years.

    Matt Morris makes another run at win No. 15 on the year for St. Louis. The Cardinals have lost Morris' last five starts, but his last time out he showed distinct progress. Morris held the powerful Reds to an unearned run on one hit over six innings in receiving a no-decision. Morris has one start left after Tuesday -- he's slated to pitch the last regular-season game at the old ballpark.

    The Astros will counter with workhorse Roy Oswalt, who has an outside shot at his second 20-win season. Oswalt has recovered from a shaky August to pitch like his usual outstanding self in September, going 3-1 with a 2.73 ERA over five starts this month. Over the years, the Cardinals have given Oswalt more trouble than most teams.

    St. Louis has lost consecutive series for the first time all season. The Cardinals haven't dropped three series in a row since Sept. 6-16, 2004, when they lost sets to San Diego, the Dodgers and Houston.

    Pitching matchup:
    HOU: RHP Roy Oswalt
    • 18-12, 2.91 ERA in 2005
    • 0-2, 7.50 ERA vs. STL in 2005

    STL: RHP Matt Morris
    • 14-9, 3.97 ERA in 2005
    • 1-0, 3.60 ERA vs. HOU in 2005

    Player to watch
    Oswalt does a good job of keeping Albert Pujols in the park, but not off the bases. Pujols is a .368 hitter (14-for-38) against the Houston righty with three doubles, a home run and four walks.

    Quotable
    "It's a neat thing to see. It's good for them. It's good for us. It's a good team atmosphere." -- John Mabry, on the Cardinals' young players

    • STL: KMOX 1120

    Quick hits
    Mark Grudzielanek is hitting .318 with a .365 on-base percentage at home. ... Larry Walker, who may return to action on Tuesday, is hitting .293 with a .385 OBP and .486 slugging at home, as opposed to .208/.333/.434 on the road. ... If Morris can rack up 16 1/3 innings over his last two starts, he will reach 200 innings for the second straight year and fifth time in his career. ... Morris is hitting .093 this year, which would be his worst year at the plate since 1998. ... Morris struck out 6.28 batters per nine innings in the first half. Since the All-Star break, that number is 4.39.

            Worth noting: My friend who bouces at a bar in Illinois said that Lidge and Oswalt came into the bar tonight.

            When asked "Where's Roger," they laughed. I bet they get that a lot... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

                Seriously, isn't it in our interest to throw these three games to the Astros?

                    Ok, you're starting to get on my nerves. First time I ever hear about you is in my "no-hitter" GDT that Kah fucked up and now we get Brewer predictions every fucking day. Enough already! If I hear anymore about anything related to god (Favre) or Bud (I know he's not the owner but he used to be) Selig I think I'll puke.[img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]
                    The only thing good about Milwaukee is Bob Uecker and the next manager of the STL Cardinals, Ned Yost. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]




















                    j/k man. Love you're enthusiasm for a .500 team and a winless team. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

                          Yes. That's why we're starting Morris.

                          Look for a Ray King appearance about the fifth inning.

                            I hope this isn't DK's first game ( and I don't think it is) but if it is, point out #5 to him and tell him that's the greatest player he'll ever see. That's what my dad did for me with a player with the #6 on his back.

                              Of course DK's been going to games since he was a baby. This is maybe his 8th game for this year. He loves going to the games and watching them on TV too.

                              EDIT: He already knows that Pujols is the greatest player ever!
