The Houston Astros look to move on from a rough weekend, with interim manager Tony DeFrancesco looking to guide his team forward after another disastrous series loss, a three-game sweep at home at the hands of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Astros fired manager Brad Mills on Saturday, have won just seven games since July 1 and are on pace to once again secure the worst record in the MLB.
Houston travels to St. Louis to take on a Cardinals team fighting for one of two National League Wild Card spots and that now trails the Pittsburgh Pirates by two games for the final postseason berth. Houston is just 12-48 this season away from Minute Maid Park.
Probable starting pitchers:
Tuesday: RHP Lucas Harrel (10-8, 3.81) vs. RHP Adam Wainwright (11-10, 3.87); 7:15 p.m. CDT on FS Houston.
Wednesday: RHP Bud Norris (5-10, 5.23) vs. RHP Kyle Lohse (12-2, 2.61); 7:15 p.m. CDT on FS Houston.
Thursday: LHP Dallas Keuchel (1-5, 4.99) vs. RHP Jake Westbrook (12-9, 3.50); 12:45 p.m. CDT on FS Houston.
