Astros lineup Tuesday vs. Brewers

The Astros are 9-6 against teams in their division this year and begin a six-game stretch against NL Central foes tonight when they battle the Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee. Felipe Paulino (0-6, 5.36 ERA) will pitch against former Astros lefty Randy Wolf (3-4, 5.10). Wolf is the ninth left-handed starter the Astros have faced this year and the second in a row. Houston is 3-5 against lefty starters.

Paulino is riding a six-game losing streak and is the first Astros pitcher to begin 0-6 since Chris Holt in 1999. His run support average of 2.58 is the fourth-lowest in the Majors this year, and he has the lowest run support in the past two seasons at 2.52. That’s more than a half run lower then the next pitcher on that list, Kenshin Kawakami of Atlanta. The Astros have lost eight of his nine starts.

Here are the lineups:

Manzella moved to the 8 hole I see, how much time do you think he has to start swinging the bat before they make a move?
