ST. LOUIS – There was 2004, his seventh major league season, his first playoffs. Carlos Beltran was with the Astros, and they reached Game 7 of the NLCS. Roger Clemens started for Houston, and if anybody was going to pitch a winner-take-all game for the right to play in the World Series ... well, this was Roger Clemens on the mound. The Astros lost 5-2. The winners? The Cardinals, whose starting catcher was Mike Matheny.
