The Houston Astros will try to end April on a high note as they welcome the New York Mets into town. Despite low expectations this season for both teams, the Mets are 13-9 and sit a game out of first place in the NL East.
Struggling right-hander Bud Norris takes the hill for Houston after allowing seven runs to Milwaukee in his last start. Norris has made four prior starts against the Mets and is 1-1 with a 4.85 ERA.
Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey will oppose Norris on the mound. Dickey will be happy if Carlos Lee remains out with an injury as the outfielder is 8-for-21 with a home run against Dickey in his career.
