Astros face Reds, try for third win a row

The Astros will try to do something tonight they haven’t all season: win three games in a row. That’s if the weather holds up.

Left-hander J.A. Happ (1-4, 6.35 ERA) will start tonight for the Astros against Reds pitcher Mike Leake (3-0, 4.40 ERA).

Carlos Lee, who spent last night in Houston hospital after colliding with teammate Angel Sanchez on Sunday, is out of the lineup, as expected. And Brett Wallace is in the clean-up spot.

Here are the lineups:
