Houston Astros Vs. Texas Rangers: Saturday Preview, TV Schedule And More

The Houston Astros look to rebound against the Texas Rangers, a night after being dominated by Yu Darvish in a 6-2 loss to the Rangers.

Lucas Harrell will start for the Astros, as he looks to improve upon his 6-4 record. Despite the winning record, Harrell hasn't pitched that well this season. Harrell is striking out just 4.48 batters per nine innings, and he's walking batters at a 3.30 per nine inning rate. Harrell will need to improve upon those stats if Harrell plans on taming Texas' bats.

Houston's offense will face off against Justin Grimm, who will be making his MLB debut for the Rangers. Grimm has been pitching for Texas' AA affiliate this season, and is making the start in place of the injured Alexi Ogando...who was filling in for the injured Derek Holland.

First pitch is scheduled for 6:15 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Televised coverage can be found on FOX, which means usage is blacked out.
