Bourn could be done for the season

The Astros’ lineup for Friday’s game in Pittsburgh once again didn’t include Gold Glove center fielder Michael Bourn, who’s nursing a strained side muscle. Bourn suffered the injury Sunday and hasn’t made enough progress to do any baseball-related drills.

Bourn admitted there’s a chance he might not play in the team’s final nine games of 2010.

“It’s a chance,” Bourn said. “I hope I’m able to, but at the same time I’m not going to rush it either. I’m going to play it by ear. I’m going to get up in the morning and not try to do anything strenuous.”

Here is the lineup:

CF Jason Bourgeois

SS Angel Sanchez

RF Hunter Pence

LF Carlos Lee

2B Jeff Keppinger

3B Chris Johnson

C Humberto Quintero

1B Brett Wallace

P Brett Myers
