Cardinals vs. Astros lineups: Bud Norris set to start final National League home game for Houston

With the Houston Astros set to embark on a six-game road trip to conclude the 2012 season, Wednesday's series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals will be their final home game as a National League team.

The Astros (50-105) have lost the first two games of the series by a combined score of 10-1. Bud Norris (5-13, 5.05 ERA) is set to take the mound against Chris Carpenter (0-0, 3.60 ERA) despite dealing with a blister on his hand on top of flu-like symptoms.

Norris hasn't earned a win since May 21 but could get lucky tonight with Carpenter only making his second start of the season.
