Classic duds, classic win
No support for Clemens
Roger Clemens was superb again, hurling six shutout innings, but for the eighth time this season he got no run support before exiting. The Astros managed seven hits, but struck out 10 times and stranded nine baserunners. The loss leaves Houston 1 1/2 games back in the NL Wild Card race.
