Game Thread #64: Brewers (33-30) at Astros (32-32)

Since the last time the Brewers and Astros met, the Brewers have started to play like they were supposed to, and the Astros have done the same. 

The weak link is Roy Oswalt, tonight's starter for Houston, who has pitched more like Jeff Suppan is supposed to.  He hasn't had any truly disastrous outings, but he's held the opposition to fewer than three runs only once in 13 starts.  That's not the perennial Cy Young Award contender we've grown accustomed to.

Seth McClung, on the other hand...he's coming off a strong start against the D-Backs, and has had two respectable outings in three tries.  I'll take it.  It isn't entirely up to him, but the better he pitches, the more likely Jeff Weaver exercises his out clause this weekend and becomes a New York Met.  Or something.

Game time is 7:05.  Here's the BR Game Preview.

Go Brewers!
