The Reds swept the Astros this weekend in Houston for the first time since 1999.
My first season covering the club was a magical one with Jack McKeon's Redlegs rolling to 96 victories before falling one win short of reaching the playoffs.
If you recall, it was a four-game sweep at the Dome in Houston in late June which jumpstarted the '99 Reds to a memorable run which put them on the brink of the playoffs. Ron Villone (remember him?) tossed a one-hitter at the 'Stros to highlight that series.
We'll find out beginning in St. Louis tonight if the Reds can carry the momentum of this past weekend's broom-job in Houston into the rest of the season.
