Brewers Lose Again To Astros 0-1

From Sportsline.com:

Roger Clemens and the Houston Astros had a moment of confusion before realizing they'd beaten Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Clemens struck out nine in seven shutout innings and Mike Lamb scored on a strange play in the ninth to give the Astros a 1-0 win over the Brewers.

"We didn't know what happened," Clemens said. "Everyone didn't know whether to run on the field or not."

The Astros won their season-high fifth straight by salvaging another sharp outing from Clemens, who matched his season high for strikeouts.

The Rocket allowed three runs or fewer for the 13th time in 14 starts, but walked away with a no-decision.

Brad Lidge (1-4) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win, benefiting from a game-ending play few players had ever seen before.

Willy Taveras grounded out leading off the ninth against Milwaukee reliever Jose Capellan (2-1). Lamb and Craig Biggio followed with singles to put runners at the corners, and Capellan intentionally walked Lance Berkman to load the bases.
