Busch Stadium: 10/12/05, 10/13/05
Cardinals vs Astros

It seems like ancient history now, but Cardinals dominated game 1 of this series. Reggie Sanders hit a 2-run bomb off Pettitte in the first, and Carpenter drove in Eckstein on a suicide squeeze in the 2nd. Carpenter was sharp on the mound allowing only 2 runs on 5 hits in 8 innings. Game 2 was a different story with Oswalt owning the Cardinals save for a Pujols solo in the 6th.
