The Houston Astros are already 1-5 in the month of August and looking for their first win of a four-game series against the Washington Nationals, who are surging atop the NL East. 30-year-old Armando Galarraga is looking for his first major league win with Houston since being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City. So far the majors haven't been kind - Galarraga gave up six runs in 10 and 1/3 innings against the Pirates and Braves. Another call-up center fielder Brandon Barnes, went 0-for-3 in his debut Tuesday, subbing for the injured Jordan Schafer.
