Everyone feel better now?

Terrific start from C.J. Wilson.

Nice 3 run rally against Clay Buchholz, who is really good.

And kudos to Ron Washington for sticking with an effective and rested Darren Oliver in the 9th inning, rather than doing the reflexive move for The Closer.  You've got a 3 run lead, Neftali Feliz had pitched two innings the day before, and Oliver had a quick 8th and was pitching well...

Sticking with Oliver was the unconventional move, but it was the right one, and I'm glad it worked out.
