The Houston Astros don't play particularly well on the road (8-20 on the season) but will look to improve that record when they start their series against the San Francisco Giants.

Aside from being one of the worst road teams in the league, the Stros are coming off one of the hottest weekends in the league offensively in which they scored 20 runs in a series win against the Chicago White Sox to being a nine-game road trip.

Bud Norris (5-3, 4.65 ERA) will get the start Tuesday for the Stros, while Madison Bumgarner (7-4, 3.26 ERA) will face him the pitchers' duel for the Giants.
