Astros Vs. Giants: Saturday Preview, TV Schedule And More

Houston's bats were dominated on Friday night against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants. On Saturday night, the Astros will face off against struggling two-time Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum.

Lincecum has been nothing shy of awful this year -- and his numbers are historically bad. He carries a 3-10 record into Saturday's contest, with a 6.42 ERA and atrocious 1.58 WHIP. Lincecum has struck out 104 in 96 and 2/3 innings of work, but he's also issued 50 walks to go along with those strikeouts.

In his last two starts, Lincecum has lasted just three and 1/3 innings each, and has given up a combined 14 runs (13 earned).

Houston will send Lucas Harrell to the mound, opposing Lincecum. To date, Harrell is 7-6, with a 4.56 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. Harrell's last outing came on July 3, a no decision in which Harrell surrendered five runs on nine hits in five innings, but did strike out nine.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. CT. Televised coverage can be found on FOX Sports Houston.
