Game Thread #103: Astros (46-55) at Brewers (59-43)

The Marlins have done their part--a Jeremy Hermida home run and a scoreless ninth from Kevin Gregg put away the Cubs and moved the Brewers within a half-game of the division lead. 

So, if the Crew wins tonight, we'll have a share of the division lead, and unless Tampa Bay wins first, we'll be the 4th team in the majors (second in the league, of course) to 60 wins. 

But, first things first.  The Astros are getting off relatively easy--since Sheets and Sabathia are lined up to face both the Cardinals (that worked well, huh?) and the Cubs, Houston gets Parra, Suppan, and the short half of McBush.  Tonight it's Parra, and the Astros counter with Wandy Rodriguez.  Wandy has had a nice season (3.31 ERA is 80+ innings) despite a few rough outings lately.

Let's hope Miller Park is more favorable to the Astros/Parra matchup than the juice box is--we're dealing with small samples, but Berkman, Lee, Tejada, and Wigginton all have 940+ OPSs against Manny.

Game time is 7:05 CT, and here's the BR Game Preview.
