Nats Sold...Barkley Admits Gambling Problem...Astros Beat Cards
Charles Barkley estimated that he's lost about $10 million gambling over the years in an interview Wednesday. "My agent has really worked with me to try to get it where I can go and gamble and have fun," Barkley told ESPN. "That's easier said than done. Do I have a gambling problem? Yeah, I do have a gambling problem. But I don't consider it a problem because I can afford to gamble."
Roy Oswalt pitched eight strong innings and Lance Berkman drove in three runs to lead the Houston Astros to a 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. Oswalt (5-1) gave up only four hits, but three were solo home runs. He struck out five and walked none.
