After going 13-14 in the month of September, the Houston Astros will have a chance to ease a bit of their frustration with a three-game series against the Cubs set to begin on Monday night.

The Astros, who have already lost a club record 106 games this season, will use righty Lucas Harrell in Game 1. The 27-year-old Harrell leads the team with 10 victories and a 3.88 earned-run average over 31 starts, but has yet to post a scoreless outing in the second-half of the season. He will take on struggling Cubs right-hander Jason Berken, who sports a 6.00 ERA and an inordinately-high 2.07 WHIP this season.

Here are Monday's starting lineups for both teams:

1. Jose Altuve 2B
2. Scott Moore RF
3. Jed Lowrie SS
4. Fernando Martinez RF
5. Brett Wallace 1B
6. Matt Dominguez 3B
7. Jason Castro C
8. Brandon Barnes CF
9. Lucas Harrell P

1. David DeJesus CF
2. Dave Sappelt RF
3. Anthony Rizzo 1B
4. Alfonso Soriano LF
5. Starlin Castro SS
6. Luis Valbuena 3B
7. Welington Castillo C
8. Darwin Barney 2B
9. Jason Berken P
