The Astros, fresh from a four-game home sweep at the hands of the Nats, now must deal with the surging Brewers.
The Houston Astros won't likely have any relief after being swept in a four-game home series against the NL East leading Nationals - the Brewers arrive next, looking to make a run in the NL Central and/or the wild card race. The young and rebuilding Astros are riding their toughest run of the season - after a 3-24 record in July, they're already 1-7 in August. Bud Norris will take the hill for Houston, and hasn't won a game in his last eight decisions.
