    Berkman golfs a bloop into shallow left. Runners on 1st and 2nd with 0 out.

    Blum up.

    Crawford boxes = joke.

    112 ft HR for Pence scores 2. 2-1 Astros now.

    Anyone know why they call them the Crawford boxes?

    With Fogg, you better have the BP ready by the 5th regardless of how well he is doing.

    From wikipedia...

    The boxes are named for their being parallel to Crawford Street in Downtown Houston.

    The Crawford Boxes are located in left field in Minute Maid Park with one of the shortest porches in baseball. The home-plate-to-wall measurement of the boxes is only 315 feet (96 meters). The 19-foot wall that maintains the front of the elevated boxes houses the hand-operated scoreboard for other games occurring the same day.

    Due to their popularity, Crawford Box seats are among the most expensive of outfield seats in the major leagues (an individual ticket is $32).

    Landry's Restaurants, Inc. have bought out the naming rights to the Crawford Boxes, lending the commercial moniker "Landry's Crawford Boxes" during radio and television broadcasts. In addition, promoters from restaurants owned by Landry's (such as Rainforest Cafe and Saltgrass Steakhouse) visit on random days and throw gifts such as T-shirts, keychains, frisbees, and stuffed animals to the fans in the boxes. Traditionally, any fan that catches a home run ball that lands in the Crawford Boxes wins a gift certificate to a Landry's Restaurant.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Jason Bourne flies out to center. Score would be 1-1 on any field other than one resembling something out of Williamsport.

    But hey, on the bright side Patterson's due up to start the 5th. He grounds to SS.

    Bako also grounds out to short. 2 out.

    Fogg Ks.

    Oswalt cruises through the top of the 5th in 8 pitches. 59 total through 5 IP (45 strikes, 14 balls. Wow).

    Hate to say this, but I doubt we'll score 2 runs in this game, so all the Stros need is one more.

    Sad.
