The Houston Astros's losing streak is at five games, and the team that upset Clayton Kershaw and the red-hot Dodgers to pull to .500 seems a distant memory in just a week's time. Bud Norris will take the hill in the final game of the series. Norris is 5-1 as a starter this season, but was shelled in his last appearance, throwing over 100 pitches in a four inning outing against Los Angeles.
Thursday's game will be the last between these two teams for the season and the probable future, as the Astros gear up to move to the AL West in 2013.
