Astros Vs. Reds: Starting Line-Ups Announced

The Cincinnati Reds host the Houston Astros tonight to start a three-game series between two teams hoping for some momentum in a rather miserable NL Central at this point. Only the St. Louis Cardinals have their heads above .500 early in the year and a once dominant division looks rather uninspired. That said, the Astros have shown considerable life for a team that was by far the worst in baseball last season and hold the No. 1 pick in the upcoming MLB Draft.

As Mike Leake and Wandy Rodriguez duke it out on the mound, here are tonight's announced line-ups.

2. Jose Altuve (R) 2B
3. J.D. Martinez (R) LF
4. Carlos Lee (R) 1B
5. Jed Lowrie (S) SS
6. Brian Bogusevic (L) RF
7. Chris Johnson (R) 3B
8. Jason Castro (L) C

CINCINNATI REDS

2. Drew Stubbs (R) CF
