Busch Stadium: 10/19/05
Cardinals vs Astros

This final game at Busch Stadium game wouldn’t have been possible without a 9th inning 3-run homer by Albert Pujols in game 5 at Houston. The crowd came out rocking and the atmosphere was electric early on, but as Oswalt quieted the Cardinals’ bats and the Astros built a lead the finality of the circumstances set it. Everyone stood in the 9th, desperately rooting for another miracle comeback that never came.
