In Game Six of the NLCS, the Houston Astros earn their first World Series berth in the team's 44 years history with a 5 - 1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Roy Oswalt, who also won Game Two, gives up only three hits and strikes out six Cardinals over seven innings in earning the NLCS MVP award. Houston had been 0-5 with a chance to clinch the NLCS. For the Cardinals, the loss marks the end of the season for the team that led the majors with 100 wins. It also is the final game in the current version of Busch Stadium, scheduled to be demolished by a wrecking ball to make room for St. Louis' new ballpark of the same name. Houston will face the Chicago White Sox in the World Series.
