No wonder the celebration was so sweet. They never had one before.

The Houston Astros made it to their first World Series after 44 seasons, owing it all to Roy Oswalt, who took his team's hopes, dreams and gritty resolve and pitched them past the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday night.

Even with the NL trophy firmly in their grasp, they could hardly believe it.

"It's been a long time, you know. I'm not greedy, I'm not selfish, just wanted to go one time," Craig Biggio said. "I can't tell you how happy I am, it took us a long time and we've got 5 million people in Houston who are very pumped up right now."
