The Houston Astros open up a three-game series at home against the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, in a battle of two NL Central cellar dwellers.

Few, if any, will care about this game outside of the fanbases, as the Astros and Cubs have the two worst records in all of baseball. Still, for longtime Astros fans, this series will be a bit bittersweet, as the Astros will never play host to the Cubs as a National League team again after this series' conclusion.

Dallas Keuchel gets the start for the Astros on Monday night, and is looking for his first win since June 23. Keuchel has struggled at the big league level, and brings a 1-7 record, 5.54 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into Monday night's contest against the Cubs.

Houston's bats will face off against Chris Volstad, who hasn't fared any better than Keuchel this season. Volstad carries a 2-10 record, 6.23 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into Monday's start.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT from Minute Maid Park. Televised coverage can be found on FOX Sports Houston.
