The Houston Astros will begin the second half of the 2012 MLB season on the road in San Francisco, where they played victim to Matt Cain's perfect game earlier in the year. Houston need a break, having lost 10 of their last 11 games before the All-Star break.
Starter Jordan Lyles looked impressive in his last outing, getting a win against Milwaukee with a seven inning, two-run, six-hit effort. In 11 starts, however, Lyles is 2-5 with a 5.08 ERA.
