ST. LOUIS – Yes, it is possible to win on the road in the NL championship series. Roy Oswalt showed the way for Houston, silencing the St. Louis Cardinals and all their red-clad fans. Oswalt pitched seven stellar innings, Chris Burke kept up his unlikely postseason hitting and the Astros defeated the Cardinals 4-1 Thursday night, evening the best-of-seven series at one game apiece. The next three games are in Houston, beginning with Saturday’s contest matching Roger Clemens of the Astros against St. Louis’ Matt Morris. Burke’s run-scoring single gave the Astros a 3-1 lead, and he came all the way around to score when Adam Everett tripled off the glove of left-fielder Reggie Sanders. Sanders, the Cardinals’ hottest postseason hitter with 12 RBI, fell awkwardly on the warning track and left the game with a sprained lower back. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Astros added two more in the eighth off reliever Julian Tavares. Burke, hero of the Astros’ NLDS against Atlanta, came through again in his first postseason start by scoring two runs and driving in another with a two-out single in the eighth – ending Houston’s 0-for-14 drought with runners in scoring position. “Well, I was hardly the hero tonight,” said Burke, now 5 for 8 with two homers and four RBI in the postseason. “Roy was great – seven innings pitched and one run. He bailed us out quite a few times. Luckily, I was able to get a couple knocks.” Brad Lidge came on for a two-inning save, closing out the six-hitter with three strikeouts. Oswalt allowed only five hits, struck out six and didn’t let a runner past second base except for Albert Pujols, who led off the sixth with a 438-foot home run that cleared the Houston bullpen. Otherwise, Oswalt made every big pitch he needed, improving his career postseason record to 3-0. The Cardinals went 0 for 6 against the right-hander with runners in scoring position. Oswalt twice faced Jim Edmonds with two runners on – and came out on top both times against the dangerous left-handed hitter.
