Is this the real life…
… Is this just fantasy? What do you think? Which ones are the real Astros: this lean, mean hitting machine we’ve seen recently, with all its pieces healthy and in good shape, or those anemic bats we’ve had to endure during the whole season?
Six homers were shot during the game, two of them by Aubrey Huff, who took the lid off himself and drove in six runs, going 3-for-4; Craig Biggio, Jason Lane and Luke Scott also joined the party… alongside Roy Oswalt, who belted his first dinger in quite a long time.
Some explosive hitting nonetheless, and it all went one-way: 14 runs and 15 hits for the Astros; 1 run and 4 hits for the Pirates; all of them earned by Oswalt, who put on a solid display throughout 7 frames.
