Irony of the day

Roy Oswalt goes 7 innings tonight, gives up just 1 unearned run.

Houston takes a 3-1 lead into the 9th inning.

Here's the play-by-play for the bottom of the 9th:

  • B. Lidge relieved C. Qualls
  • M. Cairo singled to right
  • R. Ludwick hit for B. Ryan
  • R. Ludwick walked, M. Cairo to second
  • A. Pujols hit for D. Eckstein
  • D. Eckstein singled to deep left, M. Cairo scored, R. Ludwick to third
  • B. Barden ran for A. Pujols
  • R. Ankiel tripled to right, R. Ludwick and B. Barden scored
There's something ironic about Brad Lidge having yet another 9th inning meltdown, and giving up the winning hit to Rick Ankiel, of all people...

Maybe Lidge should explore a move to the outfield...
