Rising stars

After having been written off less than a month ago, the Houston Astros seem to be on the comeback trail. Although Roger Clemens is already looking ahead to next season with a view to completing some unfinished business, the Astros don't seem to have given up yet on this season. Five home runs last night against the Reds ensured them their fifth straight win and put them within 3 games of Wild Card leaders Chicago.

It's September 1st and the weather is starting to cool off a little, but major league baseball seems to be just warming up.
