There have been sometimes conflicting, and at other times incorrect, descriptions of which games would be on the set, so I'll list them here:
Disc 1: Nolan Ryan's 5th no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1981.
Disc 2: Mike Scott's 1986 no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants that clinched the NL West Division title for the Astros.
Disc 3: Game 5 of the 2005 NLDS against the Atlanta Braves. An 18-inning marathon in which homers by Lance Berkman (8th-inning grand slam), Brad Ausmus (9th-inning game-tying), and Chris Burke (18th-inning game-winner) helped the Astros overcome their playoff arch-nemesis. (This is not the game that put them into the 2005 World Series as the product description states. The Astros beat the Cardinals in the 2005 NLCS to make it to the Series).
Disc 4: The June 2007 game against the Colorado Rockies in which Craig Biggio got his 3,000th hit. Biggio had a 5-hit game and started a two-out, game-winning rally in the bottom of the 11th inning. (I was in attendance at this game and, out of all the baseball games I've attended in my life, this is one of the two greatest experiences I've had at a ballgame; the other came at Pittsburgh's old Three Rivers Stadium in 1982 when the team saluted Willie Stargell before his retirement at the end of that season.Read more ›
