Houston 3, St. Louis 0
Swamps 3, Prairies 2

Minutes after the end of the Red Sox game, Jeff Kent delivered a walk-off 3-run homer to break a scoreless tie in the bottom of the 9th before the home crowd in Houston. Guess Kent didn't like the fact that Jason Isringhausen gave Lance Berkman a free pass so he could pitch to Kent.

Now it's St. Louis, battered bullpen and all, that's on the brink of elimination, and they have to beat Roger Clemens and Roy Oswalt in succession, although they will be at Busch Stadium. Is Brandon Backe this year's answer to Josh Beckett, Fransisco Rodriguez, and Livan Hernandez, the rookie who comes in and takes the postseason by storm, having held Pujols, Edmonds, Rolen, and the rest in check the whole night long?

The home team has won all 5 games in this series - can the Cardinals hold serve and advance to the World Series?
