Through a solid month and a half of the regular season, the good news is that the Astros are only a game back of the defending NL Central Champion Brewers, but the bad news is both clubs are closer to last place than first.
Bud Norris will start the two game series on the hill for Houston, and was excellent in his last outing, a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh featuring eight strike outs. Despite ranking eighth in the NL in runs scored, the Brewers have had 12 games of two runs or less with a wildly inconsistent offense.
