The Houston Astros will try to close out the first half of the MLB season on a good note with a series win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Houston dropped the series opener on Friday losing 7-1 but bounced back on Saturday to win 6-3 after Milwaukee ace Zack Greinke was ejected after throwing only four pitches.
Jordan Lyles will take the mound for the Astros on Sunday and will be looking to bounce back from a tough outing against the Pirates. Lyles surrendered seven runs in just four innings last time out and will be looking for much better results on Sunday. For the season Lyles has compiled a 2-5 record with a 5.40 ERA.
Milwaukee is scheduled to pitch Marco Estrada but there are rumblings that Greinke could return to the mound for Sunday's series finale.
