Houston returns home after finally snapping their losing streak. They'll face a Dodgers team that's struggled on the road early this season.

The Astros will see what's been a drastically different L.A. Dodgers team on the road than at home so far in the early season. L.A. is a perfect 6-0 at home, but 4-3 on the road and arrive in Houston 1-2 after a three-game set against the Brewers in Milwaukee. The Astros broke out of their funk - before Thursday's win at Washington, Houston had lost seven of their last eight and four straight games. The Astros rebounded in a big way, routing Washington 11-4 thanks two at least two RBIs from five different hitters.

Jose Altuve has been a bright spot offensively for Houston thus far, reaching base in 10 of 12 games, drawing three walks in the process.
