Astros Vs. Cubs: Game 3 Preview, TV Info And More

The Astros are looking to close out a home sweep of the struggling Chicago Cubs, who've now lost eight straight after two losses to Houston. Wandy Rodriguez will start, but his strong ERA - 2.24 this season - belies how ineffective his team has been when he's started, as the team is only 3-6 when he pitches. That could change Wednesday, as the Astros have the second best run-differential in the division, while Chicago has the worst. This is the 20th career start against the Cubs for Rodriguez, who is 5-6 lifetime with a 3.99 ERA.

Date / Time: Wednesday, May 23, 6:05 p.m. CT

Location: Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas

TV: Fox Sports Houston, WGN

Radio: KTRH 740, KLAT 1010

Probable Starters: Wandy Rodriguez (3-4) vs. Jeff Samardzija (4-2)
