The Ageless Wonder

Roger Clemens has a better record and a better ERA than last year. Last year he retired. This year he came out of retirement for one last hurrah for the home team. Clemens has pitched brilliantly this year and did so again tonight. The Astros, who fell back out of the lead for Wild Card, beat their division leader/rival, the St. Louis Cardinals. Rocket Roger now holds sole possession of 11th all-time in the wins column and continues to climb that ladder. He has brought a second ace to the Astros rotation and has helped to pick up the slack from the Pettitte injury. Hopefully the momentum from this evening's win will carry the Astros on another winning streak and they can make a last surge for the wild card spot.
