The Houston Astros Kick Off the Second Half of the Season Against the Seattle Mariners

The Houston Astros only had one player named to the All-Star team and catcher Jason Castro did not play in Tuesday’s game.  What does that mean?  That the whole Astros team has had some much needed time off.  They will hopefully put that rest to good use as they start a three game weekend series with the Seattle Mariners tonight.

Houston will send starter Bud Norris (Pictured on the Left) to the mound opposite Seattle’s starter Joe Saunders.  Norris, who has been one of the Astros better starters is looking to get a win as he is just 2-4 in his last ten starts, but has had a respectable 3.09 ERA in that stretch.

The Astros offense will look to improve as the last time they faced Saunders, he blanked the Astros for six plus innings on April 8th while giving up just six hits.  The Mariners went on to win the game with a final score of 3-0.

Saunders will be going for his fourth win in a row tonight as first pitch is set for 7:10 pm from Minute Maid Park.
