Astros vs. Cubs Preview: Bud Norris looks for third straight Houston win

The Houston Astros will look to end their season on a high note and make it two in a row as they take on the Chicago Cubs Tuesday night. Houston opened the three game series with a 3-0 win.

Bud Norris (6-13, 4.82 ERA) takes the mound for Houston, facing Chris Volstad (3-11, 6.64 ERA) for Chicago. Norris is 1-2 with a 5.51 ERA against the Cubs this year, giving up 10 runs on 20 hits over 16⅓ innings in three starts. His lone win came in May, an outing that saw him throw seven scoreless innings. Volstad hasn't fared much better against Houston, as he's 1-1 in two starts with a 4.50 ERA. He won his last outing against Houston, but his first was a 10-1 Houston win Aug. 14.

Game time on Tuesday is 7:05 p.m. CT, with television coverage of the game provided on Fox Sports Houston and CSN+.
