The Astros took a 9-8 series opening win over the defending World Champions, and could make up some of their 6.5 game deficit in the NL Central against a sliding St. Louis squad (losers of seven of their last ten). Bud Norris was rocked in his last start against Colorado - giving up nine runs in only 1 and 2/3 innings - and looks to return to his regular form. Cards starter Adam Wainwright is perfect all-time in starts at Minute Maid (4-0, 1.83 ERA in five starts).
