The Astros and Braves are playing the rubber match of their three-game series.
The Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves wrap up their three-game series with this third game being the rubber match since the Astros won the first game 8-3 and the Braves won Tuesday night's game 6-4. The Braves had Chipper Jones return after missing the first four games on the season who hit a two-run home run to beat the Astros.
Jones has always played well against the Astros and especially against Wandy Rodriguez who is the starting pitcher for the Astros Wednesday night. In his career Jones is 5-for-20 with two homers, a triple and five walks against Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is making his second start of the season and is still looking for his first win. In his prior start Rodriguez allowed six hits and three unearned runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Colorado Rockies on opening day. Rodriguez has had success against the Braves and has not allowed a run in 14 innings over his last two starts against the Braves.
