The Astros won their 8th straight game last night, completing a 4-game sweep of the Giants.

Lance Berkman provided the heroics, breaking a tie in the bottom of the 8th with a 2-run home run.

The streak has sent Houston’s record to 3 games over .500 for the first time since the beginning of June.

The team is having a hard time explaining their recent success, though.

“There’s a little magic in the clubhouse,” manager Cecil Cooper said.

Well, that’s one explanation. But how about instead of pixie dust, we look at the two teams the Astros have played in this 8-game run? Aha, it’s the Giants and the Reds. That explains everything.
