Padres throw Stauffer at Astros

The Padres scratched right-hander Kevin Correia for Sunday’s game against the Astros in favor of right-hander Tim Stauffer, who’s 2-1 with a 0.49 ERA in nine relief appearances. He will face Astros ace Roy Oswalt, who has six quality starts in six outings this year but has only a 2-4 record to show for it.

Houston has lost 11 of 12 games and needs a win today to avoid a sweep and salvage a seven-game home stand during which it’s won only one game.

Here are the lineups:

Michael Bourn CF

Jeff Keppinger 2B

Lance Berkman 1B

Carlos Lee LF

Hunter Pence RF

Pedro Feliz 3B
