Clemens still "penciled in" for Game 5 start
HOUSTON (AP) _ Though he's still sore, Roger Clemens remains
"penciled in" as the Houston Astros starting pitcher for Game
Five of the World Series.
Astros manager Phil Garner said today that Clemens, forced out
of Game One after only two innings because of a recurring left
hamstring injury, was still day-to-day.
Clemens wasn't available to the media before Game Three tonight
in Houston. The seven-time Cy Young Award winner was on the field
for the introduction of the teams, and in the dugout for the game.
In his first Game One start in the World Series, the 43-year-old
Clemens left after 54 pitches against the Chicago White Sox, walked
gingerly down the dugout steps and went straight to the clubhouse.
The game was tied at three when the Rocket left, and the Astros
went on to lose 5-3.
