Astros Need One Win To Move On To World Series

They just need one win. One.
The Houston Astros are a win away from doing what no other Texas team has ever done. Gone to MLB's World Series.
In the NLCS game 5 Monday night, Craig Biggio would single to left scoring Brad Ausmus in the second.
In the top of the third the Cardinals Mark Grudzielanek would hit an RBI single and the Cards went up 2 to 1.
Then in the bottom of the 7th, with runners at the corners, Lance Berkman took it to the opposite field. The homer to left. The Astros would go up 4 to 2.
It looked like the Houston team had clinched, but with two outs in the top of the ninth, Albert Pujols steps to the plate, with two on and gets the slam.
Saint Louis wins, 5 to 4. Houston still leads the series 3 games to 2. They have Tuesday off, and will play on Wednesday.
