NLDS game 3

The Astros are back in Houston for Game 3 of the Division Series today, looking to break the 1-1 tie with Roy Oswalt on the mound. The Braves will look to Jorge Sosa who has somehow emerged as a solid pitcher this season after 3 season of being a Tampa Bay Devil Rays pitcher. Sosa has never hit Craig Biggio with a pitch, never pitched in the postseason, and hasn't hit anyone in the entire 2005 season. Sosa has faced 586 batters since the last batter he hit.

Of plunkworthy note in last nights playoff action, Tim Wakefield tied Greg Maddux with 8 career postseason hit batters when he, according to umpire Mark Wegner, brushed Carl Everett's aura. I was under the impression that the aura was considered part of the bat. Wakefield also gained sole possession of the all time Division Series record, with 6.
