Fight on to victory
The scene in the Astros’ clubhouse after their 4-3 win Saturday was raucous and loud, but not because they beat the Cardinals. No, the excitement stemmed from USC’s win over Notre Dame, which triggered ongoing trash-talking in the friendly confines of Houston’s locker room.
"This was the biggest college football game of the year, as far as I’m concerned," Lidge said. "That game didn’t work out, but fortunately, ours did. So, I’m happy."
There may or may not have been a friendly wager on this game. Lidge hinted dark days are ahead for him.
"I might have to wear some USC pantyhose around the locker room," he said. "It’s going to be bad." — Alyson Footer / MLB.com
