The Houston Astros look to build off of their 8-2 road win yesterday as they take on the San Diego Padres this afternoon at Petco Field. Today's game is the third game of their four game series which ends of Thursday.
Wandy Rodriguez (7-7, 3.41 ERA0 will take the mound for the Astros, looking to rebound after losing his last start against the San Francisco Giants. Rodriguez has a quality outing, giving up seven hits and four earned runs in six innings, but didn't have any run support in the Astros' 5-1 loss.
San Diego will sent out Clayton Richard (6-10, 3.83 ERA), coming off a tough luck loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers in his last start. Richard gave up five hits and two earned runs in 7-1/3 innings of work, but the Padres' bats went cold in their 2-1 loss on July 13.
