Cubs Vs. Astros Starting Lineups: Battle Of The Worst In Houston

The Houston Astros will welcome their division rival Chicago Cubs to Houston one final time, with both teams currently battling for the worst record in all of baseball. It's certainly not what either team was expecting to be fighting for when the season first began.

Jimmy Paredes will once again be leading off for an Astros team that is coming off a 5-1 win over the Reds on Sunday. The utility player has hit .190 in 11 games for the Astros, with just three RBIs and no home runs.
