Brad Thompson (1-0, 0.00) vs Shawn Chacon (0-0, 3.00)

Partly cloudy. Winds blowing out to left field at 5-15 m.p.h. Game Time temperature: High 70's.

Your Houston Astros send Shawn Chacon against Brad Thompson for the Cardinals. Last time out Chacon went 6 innings giving up only 2 runs in what turned out to be an Astros loss. Thompson went 6 2/3 innings giving up no runs in a Cardinals Win.
The Astros are coming off a really exciting win in which they gave up a 3 run lead in the 9th inning, and then turned around in the bottom half of the inning and won the game on a walk off shot by Miguel Tejada. Now we're looking for back to back wins for the 1st time this season.
