Astros Vs. Dodgers: Game 3 Lineups Announced

News flash. The Houston Astros struggle to score runs. In 15 games thus far this season, the Astros are scoring less than four runs a game. (3.9 runs/game entering Sunday's action) With an inexperienced pitching staff and a barn box for a stadium, the ability to score is vital.

Can Jordan Schafer pick it up at the leadoff spot? Is Jed Lowrie ready to round into form? Is there any life left in Carlos Lee's bat? It seems there are more questions than answers for the Astros, as the league's hottest hitter in Matt Kemp and the Los Angeles Dodgers go for the sweep this Sunday afternoon. Here are the lineups for the series finale.
