The Houston Astros Take on Former NL Central Foe the St. Louis Cardinals
The Houston Astros are trying to get back on track after losing two of three games over the weekend to the Texas Rangers. They will have to do so in St. Louis as they take on their former National League foe the Cardinals.
Starter Bud Norris will be on the mound for Houston opposite the Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright. Norris is looking to bounce back after a rough outing against the Detroit Tigers in his last start. He allowed seven runs on nine hits in just five innings of work. Houston hopes he will pull it together though as he has been one of there most consistent pitcher this season.
The Astros are currently a half a game behind the Miami Marlins for the worst record in all of baseball at 32-57. They finished dead last in the MLB last season with a franchise worst 55-107 win-loss record in 2012. First pitch is set for 7:15 pm from Busch Stadium from St. Louis.
