Manzella out 6 weeks, plus lineup vs. Giants

The Astros try to snap their five-game losing streak and nine-game losing streak against the Giants tonight at Minute Maid Park when Barry Zito (7-3, 3.13 ERA) faces Brett Myers (3-4, 3.34 ERA) in the middle game of the three-game series.

Houston received some bad news prior to Wednesday’s game when it was revealed starting shortstop Tommy Manzella will miss six weeks with a fractured left index finger, an injury suffered diving for a ball in the sixth inning Tuesday. Oswaldo Navarro was called up from Triple-A Round Rock to take his place.

Here are the lineups:
