Greetings from Minute Maid Park

Greetings from Minute Maid Park, where tonight the Houston Astros host the Central Division-leading Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game series.

Minute Maid is abuzz because the Astros, whose three-game winning streak is tied for the Major League's longest (with Seattle), have a chance to gain ground on the reeling Brewers, losers of four straight.

The Astros are in fourth place, 8 1/2 games behind Milwaukee. For the first time since June 17, Houston is less than nine games out of first.

If the Astros sweep the Brewers, they'll be a mere 5 1/2 games behind Milwaukee and in the thick of the pennant race.

So far, so good for the Astros.

Carlos Lee just singled to left, driving in Craig Biggio to give the Astros a 1-0 lead in the first.
