The Houston Astros will go for their third straight win when they welcome the Atlanta Braves into town on Monday night. Atlanta has yet to win after being swept by the New York Mets in its first series.
Making his first start of the season for Houston is J.A. Happ. The 29-year-old left-hander has had Atlanta's number over the years, compiling a 2-0 record and a 2.09 ERA against them in seven appearances.
Opposing Happ will be Brandon Beachy, who no Astro has ever faced. Beachy went 7-3 with a 3.68 ERA in 25 starts for Atlanta last season.
