The Houston Astros send Brandon Backe to try and right the ship against Andrew Miller of the Florida Marlins. If the Astros think they are going to be anything close to a good team, they should be able to rough Miller up some. In Miller's 2 starts this season he's only pitched 7.2 innings total and given up 11 earned runs. Miller has yet to make it into the 6th inning this season.
Backe has pitched well so far this season going 11 innings over his 2 games started and given up just 2 runs in each game. Backe will need to keep the ball in the yard today against the Marlins who belted 6 long balls yesterday against the Astros.
