Rodriguez scratched for Sunday, lineup for Saturday

Nelson Figueroa, who threw 6 2/3 scoreless innings on Wednesday in Cincinnati, will start Sunday’s season finale for the Astros in place of Wandy Rodriguez, who was scratched with back spasms. Rodriguez was deemed unavailable after throwing off flat ground Saturday.

Figueroa (6-4, 3.52 ERA) is 3-3 with a 3.62 ERA this year as a starter. He’s made 10 starts, including nine for the Astros since he was picked up on waivers. Remember what he did on the final day of the 2009 season? He threw a four-hit shutout against the Astros while he was with the Mets. 

Here are the lineups for Saturday’s game against the Cubs:

2B Anderson Hernandez

SS Angel Sanchez

RF Hunter Pence

LF Carlos Lee

CF Brian Bogusevic

3B Chris Johnson

1B Brett Wallace

C Jason Castro

P J.A. Happ
