Astros aim to extend Twins' playoff misery with sweep

After watching his team push across three unearned runs in the ninth inning to pull out a 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker was in no hurry to name his starter for Wednesday afternoon's Game 2 in the best-of-three American League wild-card series in Minneapolis.

"We'll make that decision after we get our heads together," Baker said. "We'll savor this one first because it's a big win."

Houston went just 10-17 in September regular-season games and along with the Milwaukee Brewers became the first teams in baseball history to make the playoffs with losing records. Even so, the Astros can advance to the American League Division Series with another win Wednesday.
