I’m sorry for not writing recently. Some things both in and outside the Astros organization have prevented me from blogging (Our reaction to the whole Roger Clemens situation is on our Spanish-language website, astrosdehouston.com). However, we’ve seen the Astros playing better ball these days. There are cases such as last night, with Brandon Webb practically holding the offense for a ransom; but tonight we saw a completely different picture altogether for ‘Stros fans.
Four homers, Hunter Pence going yard for the second time this season, going 3-for-4; Roy Oswalt with a great outing (as usual); and Mike Lamb claiming for a bit more of the spotlight, just like he did last year.
One interesting tidbit: Pence has 11 RBI in his last 13 games. Houston is 8-5 in its last 13 games.
