Lidge came into today's game in the 7th inning after Pettitte left with the bases loaded. Astros were losing so I'm not sure what that says about his role, but he allowed a run to score on a wild pitch. Qualls and Wheeler haven't been great either so maybe he still gets the save opps.

Yeah, the game could have gotten out of hand there...they brought in their best pitcher to put out the fire. While he let one in on a wild pitch he did strike out 3 out of 5 hitters without giving up a hit or walk.
