The Astros have lost nine games in a row and are actually 20 games under .500 after their loss on Friday. JA Happ allowed 9 hits and 7 earned runs and earned his ninth loss of the season. Houston will turn to one of their only bright spots, pitcher Wandy Rodriguez tonight. He has just a 3.54 ERA in 109 innings of work already this season.
While the Brewers are not the excellent team they were a year ago they are still solid. They’re coming off a solid game on Friday in which they blasted 10 hits and the pitching staff was good enough to earn Yovani Gallardo his seventh win of the season. Zack Greinke will get the start tonight for the Brewers and the right-hander has been pitching stellar this season pitching to a 3.08 ERA in 108 innings of work.
Houston is 17-36 in their last 53 games overall, 1-11 in their last 12 games against the A.L. Central, and 3-8 in Rodriguez’s last 11 starts. Milwaukee is 4-8 in their last 12 games as a road favorite, 6-2 in their last eight games overall, and 1-4 in Greinke’s last five road starts against a team with a losing record.

Well we definitely like Greinke in this matchup we also like Rodriguez. Since these teams don’t score much to begin with take the under in total runs scored at sports books.
