Astros’ lineup at stormy Wrigley

It’s storming heavily at Wrigley Field this morning, the kind of storm that would make Lance Berkman dash for cover. Alas, the Astros and Cubs are scheduled to play at 1:20 p.m. today.

The Astros made a roster move prior to the game, activating outfielder Jason Bourgeois from the disabled list and sending outfielder Brian Bogusevic — a Chicago-area product — back to Oklahoma City. Bourgeois was scheduled to arrive in Chicago this morning, so we’ll see how the storms affect his travel.

Bud Norris returns to Wrigley Field for the first time since making his Major League debut on July 29, 2009. He allowed a run in three innings in relief and has gone two years without pitching at Wrigley. That will change today, assuming the weather clears up.

Here is manager Brad Mills’ lineup:

CF Michael Bourn

2B Jose Altuve

RF Hunter Pence

LF Carlos Lee

1B Brett Wallace

3B Chris Johnson

SS Clint Barmes

C Humberto Quintero

RHP Bud Norris

Pence out of Astros lineup

Astros right fielder Hunter Pence, who has a 22-game hitting streak, isn’t in the lineup Sunday. Pence has been dealing with lower back spasms. Jason Bourgeois is getting the start in right field.
