Houston Astros Vs. Atlanta Braves Wednesday Lineups Announced

The Houston Astros will conclude their six-game homestand to open the 2012 season on Wednesday night against the Atlanta Braves -- and they'll look to earn their second series victory of the season.

Both managers have announced their starting lineups for Wednesday night's game, and they are as follows:

Houston Astros

Jordan Schafer, CF
Jose Altuve, 2B
J.D. Martinez, LF
Carlos Lee, 1B
Travis Buck, RF
Chris Johnson, 3B
Jason Castro, C
Marwin Gonzalez, SS
Wandy Rodriguez, SP

Atlanta Braves

Michael Bourn, CF
Martin Prado, LF
Freddie Freeman, 1B
Chipper Jones, 3B
Dan Uggla, 2B
Jason Heyward, RF
David Ross, C
Jack Wilson, SS
Randall Delgado, SP

Rodriguez did not factor into the decision on his Opening Day start, as he allowed three unearned runs in six and a third innings of work against the Colorado Rockies. Rodriguez gets a bit of a break on Wednesday night, as Atlanta's best hitter, Brian McCann, is not in the lineup.

Astros Vs. Braves: Houston Can't Make Comeback in 6-4 Loss to Atlanta

Sporting their awesome Colt .45 jerseys, the Houston Astros' three-game winning streak came to an end with Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Braves.

Kyle Weiland gave up four earned runs in five innings, picking up the loss for Houston. The Astros took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a single from Marwin Gonzalez, but the Braves answered with three runs in the top of the third, all with two outs. Tyler Pastornicky hit a solo home run in the top of the fourth to extend Atlanta's lead to 4-1.

A Carlos Lee single in the bottom of the fifth cut the deficit to two runs, but the Braves scored another run in the top of the seventh. In the bottom of the inning, the Astros had four hits and scored two runs. But the comeback fell short as the Braves scored a run in the top of the eighth and Houston couldn't plate any more runs.

Lee went 3-for-3 with two walks and two RBIs. Jordan Schafer went 3-for-5 with two runs scored.
