The Astros have now lost 4 straight and are trying to find themselves back in 4th place in the NL Central. With their current losing streak and the Cubs inability to lose(won 6 straight), the Astros find themselves 5.5 games back in the division and losing ground. Today could be the turn around point as the Astros face struggling Dave Bush who has won just 1 of his 9 games started this season. Last time out, Bush went 7 full innings against the Braves and only gave up 2 runs, but was unable to gain a decision as the Brewers failed to score any runs until after Bush had left the game. The Astros are sending Shawn Chacon to the hill who is coming a similar outing in which he also went 7 full innings and gave up only 2 runs... but he was backed by some Astros offense as he earned the win as the Astros beat the Cardinals 8-2. Unfortunately... that win was the last time the Astros added to the W column.
