It's just one game

Okay, so the Cards take game one of the NLCS. Pettite was most definitely not on top of his game, and Carpenter showed why he is considered the Cy Young frontrunner. Even so, the 'Stros were able to take Carpenter deep (way to go Burke!) and connected with Isringhausen. Even though it was a loss, Astros fans have to take heart that the team fought back and made the Cards sweat. As big a statistical mismatch as this game appears on paper, it was a tight 5-3 game at the end.

If Oswalt brings his "A" game tomorrow against (I assume) Mark Mulder, then things should turn out much better. It's hard to think Mulder would be fully recovered from being hit in the throwing arm the other week, but we'll see. Oswalt's been incredibly consistent for several years now, and I don't see him faltering now.
