Astros battle Padres at Minute Maid

The Astros try to make it three wins in a row when they open up a four-game series tonight against the Padres at Minute Maid Park. Here are the lineups:


2B Brian Bixler

SS Jed Lowrie

1B Carlos Lee

RF Brian Bogusevic

3B Chris Johnson

C Jason Castro

LF J.D. Martinez

Here are some pre-series notes:

  • The Astros dropped five of their first eight contests at Minute Maid Park this season, but have since posted one of the NL’s best home records. The Astros are 18-12 at home since April 22, which is the second-best record in that span behind the Pirates (20-11).
  • Pitching has been the main reason for Houston’s success at home, as the Astros have posted one of the major league’s largest improvements in ERA from a season ago. The Astros have a 3.44 ERA at home this year, compared to 4.60 last year.

Thanks for jinxing them, Tag. I’m blaming you for the loss. ;-)
