Bogusevic makes first start for Astros

The Astros are working on Labor Day, facing the Cubs this afternoon in the first game of a three-game series at Wrigley Field. Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, who has a 0.98 ERA since July 25, gets the start for Houston against right-hander Casey Coleman, who’s making his fourth career start.

Former first-round pick Brian Bogusevic makes his first career start for the Astros, betting sixth and playing left field.
