Houston Astros at San Diego Padres, 9:05PM CDT

New, 225 comments

Your Houston Astros take on the San Diego Padres for game 2 of this young baseball season. The Astros are sending Brandon Backe to the hill on a comeback mission to prove to everyone that he's healthy, and prove that he can stay healthy for an entire season. Hopefully in that process, he'll also put up good numbers and win a lot of games for the Astros.

Pence, Berkman, Lee and Wigginton are all looking for their first hits... with production out of those 4 like we got last night, the Astros are doomed another losing season.
