Armando Galarraga starts for the Astros on Monday night, as Houston opens up a three-game series in Chicago against the Cubs.

The Houston Astros look to cure their road woes on Monday, as Houston opens up a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Monday night.

Houston's struggles on the road have been well documented this season. The Astros are a lowly 11-46 on the road this season, which converts to a .193 winning percentage.

The Astros, however, do have as much momentum as they have had since the All-Star Break, taking two-of-three from the Milwaukee Brewers at home, including an extra-inning walk off win on Saturday.

Armando Galarraga, most known for his perfect non-perfect game, will start for the Astros on Monday. It will be Galarraga's fourth start as a member of the Astros. Through 15 and 1/3 innings, Galarraga is 0-2 with a 4.70 ERA, .250 BAA and 1.89 WHIP. Galarraga has struck out and walked 14 batters.

Houston's offense will face off against Jeff Samardizija, who has been one of the few pleasant surprises for the Cubs this year. Samardzija is 7-10, but has pitched better than his record indicates, as he's the owner of a 4.21 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, .247 BAA, and has struck out 130 in 132 and 2/3 innings, while walking 49.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT from Wrigley Field in Chicago. Televised coverage can be found on FOX Sports Houston.
