Astros have a breakthrough moment

The Houston Astros exorcised some ghosts Tuesday night and not just keeping Barry Bonds in the yard.

Houston won a home game against the San Francisco Giants for the first time since 2005. I'm not saying the Giants felt at home at Minute Maid Park but I swear the last time I was there former Shreveport Captain Pedro Feliz was enjoying some home cooking at Larry Dierker's restaurant just behind home plate.

The Astros need wins at this point of the season, just so they don't lose complete sight of the Milwaukee Brewers. The NL Central remains the most winnable division in baseball, but that's a double-edge sword.

Because a lower number of victories would win the division, it likely means no wild-card entrant will come from the Central. So for the Brewers, Cubs, Astros and Cardinals it looks like division title or bust when it comes to October baseball.
