The Houston Astros will host the St. Louis Cardinals for a series that will mark 27 consecutive division games for the visiting Cardinals, who have used that scheduling quirk to take a commanding lead in the NL Central. Lucas Harrell gets the nod for Houston to open to the series against hot veteran Kyle Lohse.

Center fielder Jordan Schafer's on-base streak is still intact - he took a walk in the first inning on Wednesday to bring the total to 24 games - but he left the game early with back pain.

Date / Time: Friday, May 4th, 7:05 p.m. CT

Location: Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas

TV: Fox Sports Houston

Radio: KTRH 740, KLAT 1010

Probable Starters: Lucas Harrell (1-2) vs. Kyle Lohse (4-0)
