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.

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.
