Well, We Failed to Make Waves in Houston

Roy Oswalt got us again. His mastery of the Reds continues as the Astros win tonight 8-6, thus ending any meaningless play the Reds will take part in for the year 2008.

Jerry Hairston and Corey Patterson homered. Jay Bruce ripped a couple more hits, stole a base and threw out Miggy Tejada from deep right field.

So the Astros live to fight another day, worrying about the muddled possibility of tie-breakers and playoff berths. It won’t happen. And damn you Houston, we’ll get you next season.
