Astros Vs. Brewers: Game 2 Preview, TV Info And More

The eight runs Wednesday matched the total for the four previous losses combined, while the Brewers have only scored six total runs in their last three losses.

Carlos Lee is the man of the moment in Houston's lineup. After a 3-for-4 night on Wednesday, he's hitting 10-for-17 (.588) in his last four games. He's now averaging .305, and has become the heart of the Astros' offense.
