Your Houston Astros send Brandon Backe to the hill against "rock star" Bronson Arroyo at 12:05PM CST in Kissimmee.
Yesterday the Astros were beat by the Marlins 8-3 behind Roy Oswalt who gave up 4 runs to earn his first loss of the spring training season.
Backe had his best out of the spring training season last time out against the Reds when he went 4 innings giving up a hit and a walk while striking out 2. Backe seems to have the #2 spot in the rotation down... hopefully he deserves it.
Astros hold an 11 and 13 record so far and have less than 2 weeks before REAL MEANINGFUL BASEBALL will be played!
