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:

Astros finish up on the road tonight

The Astros play their final road game of the 2010 season tonight in the series finale against the NL Central division champion Reds at Great American Ball Park. Houston is 34-46 on the road this season (13-10 since Aug. 22), but will be sending ace Brett Myers to the mound for his final start of the season.

Myers (14-7), who can set a career high if he wins, will try to finish a remarkable season. He’s pitched at least six innings in all 32 of his starts this year and can become the first pitcher since Curt Schilling in 2002 to do it all of his starts in a season. Myers is 6-0 with a 2.07 ERA in his last nine starts.

Here’s the Astros’ lineup:
