Game Thread #126: Astros (63-61) at Brewers (71-54)

It's a bit of a surprise, but for a middling NL team, the Astros match up pretty well with Sabathia. Erstad, Loretta (I had forgotten about his year with the Red Sox), and Tejada have all spent some time in the AL, and all have 790+ OPS's in their time against him. Of course, Erstad was better then.

This is a slightly different Astros team than we last saw--Wolf was newly acquired before our last series, but since then, Carlos Lee was lost for the season, meaning that Erstad, Blum, or both are fixtures in the starting lineup. Those guys are pesky, sure, but it's definitely a blow to the offense.

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

Go Brewers!
