The Astros will send right-hander Lucas Harrell out to pitch on Monday night for Game 1 of a three-game set with the Chicago Cubs.

After going 13-14 in the month of September, the Houston Astros will have a chance to ease a bit of their frustration with a three-game series against the Cubs set to begin on Monday night.

The Astros, who have already lost a club record 106 games this season, will use righty Lucas Harrell in Game 1. The 27-year-old Harrell leads the team with 10 victories and a 3.88 earned-run average over 31 starts, but has yet to post a scoreless outing in the second-half of the season. He will take on struggling Cubs right-hander Jason Berken, who sports a 6.00 ERA and an inordinately-high 2.07 WHIP this season.

Here are Monday's starting lineups for both teams:

Astros
1. Jose Altuve 2B
2. Scott Moore RF
3. Jed Lowrie SS
4. Fernando Martinez RF
5. Brett Wallace 1B
6. Matt Dominguez 3B

8. Brandon Barnes CF
9. Lucas Harrell P

Cubs

2. Dave Sappelt RF
3. Anthony Rizzo 1B
4. Alfonso Soriano LF
