It’s a whole new world for Astros

The Astros will play their first game in Toronto on Friday when they meet the Blue Jays in the opening game of a three-game Interleague Series. Toronto is the last place the Astros have yet to play, but that will end this weekend.

Playing an American League club on the road, the Astros get to employ the designated hitter this weekend, and to no one’s surprise Carlos Lee is at DH on Friday night. Aneury Rodriguez is on the mound against Jo-Jo Reyes, who has not won in 26 straight starts.
