Don't Panic

At least that's what I kept telling myself last night. After all, there was good news. Despite that day's 1-0 loss, the Cubs had won their series against the Reds. They had shown a lot of fortitude, and despite giving up large leads in the first two games, came back and won the day both times. The problem, of course, was that the Astros didn't just win their series against the Cardinals, they swept them in convincing fashion, allowing them to score only six runs over the entire series, five of those coming in a 14-5 drubbing in game one.

So, now the Cubs sit two games back of these surging Astros. But as long as the Cubs take care of business, all is not lost. The Astros are going to Denver.

The Astros have won exactly two series in Colorado: July of 1999 when they took three of four and June of 2000 when they took 2 of 3. Over the entire history of the matchup, Houston's record in Colorado is 13-32 (take out those two series and they went 7-30!). From 1993-2002, Colorado was 427-350 at home for a .550 winning percentage. Their winning percentage when playing Houston at home over the same period is .711. The Astro's poor play in Denver is out of character, since between 1993 and 2002, Houston was 841-714 (.541) overall, and 395-380 (.510) on the road, both good for sixth in the majors over the period. Something just didn't click for them in the Mile High City. They were very good, but they just couldn't win in the thin air. Here's hoping they still can't.
