Last night was a total bummer of a game for the Astros. Gallardo was spectacular, but tonight we get to square off against a spectacularly struggling Suppan. At only 13.2 IP through three starts so far, the Astros might get the opportunity square off against not only a struggling Suppan, but overly extend the Brewers' bull pen heading into the Sunday.


Lineup

Milwaukee Brewers @ Houston Astros

04/25/09 6:05 PM CDT

Milwaukee Brewers Houston Astros
Rickie Weeks - 2B Kazuo Matsui - 2B
Corey Hart - RF Michael Bourn - CF
Ryan Braun - LF Lance Berkman - 1B
Prince Fielder - 1B Carlos Lee - LF
Mike Cameron - CF Miguel Tejada - SS
J.J. Hardy - SS Hunter Pence - RF
Bill Hall - 3B Geoff Blum - 3B
Jason Kendall - C Ivan Rodriguez - C
Jeff Suppan - P Mike Hampton - P

If Lance would find it in himself to stop his struggles at the plate then perhaps he could capitalize on his previous ownership of Suppan: .438/.538/.844 (a 1.382 OPS) against. The other good thing to note about Suppan is that in his 39 PA against, Berkman has only K-ed twice, so a repeat performance of last night is truly improbable.

As good as Berkman has been against Suppan, Geoff Blum has been even better: .542/.560/.958 (a 1.518 OPS).
