Roy Wonder pitches Astros into first World Series
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Call him Roy Wonder, the 20-game winner in the
same rotation with Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte -- and the one
who finally pitched the Houston Astros into the World Series.
While Roy Oswalt (OHZ'-wahlt) usually prefers to be out of the
spotlight, he is the toast of Houston -- and the M-V-P of the N-L
championship series -- after allowing one run in seven innings
tonight in a 5-to-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that sent
the Astros to the first World Series in their 44-season history.
Oswalt threw 77 of his season-high 118 pitches for strikes, and
allowed just three hits in the Game six clincher.
Clemens and Pettitte are going to the World Series again, the
former New York Yankees going this time with their hometown team.
With Oswalt wrapping up the N-L-C-S, they will pitch the first
two World Series games on the road against the Chicago White Sox
