Houston Astros Vs. Milwaukee Brewers: Wednesday Starting Lineups

The Houston Astros are set to open up a two-game series with the defending National League Central champion Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night. Astros fans will get a glimpse of the reigning National League MVP as well, as Ryan Braun will be batting third for the Brewers tonight -- as is custom for the Brew Crew.

Both managers have announced the starting lineups for Wednesday night's game, and they are as follows:

Milwaukee Brewers

Nyjer Morgan, CF
Rickie Weeks, 2B
Ryan Braun, LF
Aramis Ramirez, 3B
Corey Hart, RF
George Kottaras, C
Travis Ishikawa, 1B
Cesar Izturis, SS
Randy Wolf, SP

Houston Astros

Jordan Schafer, CF
Jose Altuve, 2B
J.D. Martinez, LF
Carlos Lee, 1B
Jed Lowrie, SS
Justin Maxwell, RF
Chris Johnson, 3B
Jason Castro, C
Bud Norris, SP

Even without Prince Fielder, Milwaukee's lineup is pretty solid, though suffice to say, Ishikawa is no Fielder. We'll see if Norris can have some success against the Brewers, and move the Astros closer to .500.
