Preview

Happy Memorial Day to all TCB readers. The Astros take on the Rockies in a rare home-and-home series.

On the mound for the Astros today is Bud Norris. In three of his last fours starts, Norris has pitched like an ace - allowing three runs over 21 innings. Unfortunately, sprinkled in was a seven run outing against the AL champions in Detroit. Norris has been lights out at home with a 1.93 ERA. Norris will have to watch out against Carlos Gonzalez, Car-Go is 2-6 against Norris with a homerun and three RBIs.

Norris' counterpart, Jhoulys Chacin has had a rough May to say the least. After recording a sparkling 1.46 ERA in may. Chachin has been destroyed by San Francisco (8 runs over 5 1/3 innings) and Tampa Bay (5 runs over seven innings) in two outings in May. The Rockies righty should be happy back at sea level, Chachin's ERA on the road (2.70) is two runs lower then at home (4.89). Carlos Pena and J.D. Martinez are batting .500 off the right-hander, and Pena has two homeruns in six at-bats.
