It's a battle of lefties tonight. Hopefully this matchup goes better than Hampton's last start against Dodger left hander Clayton Kershaw. Here's my guarantee for tonight: if Mike Hampton keeps the ball in his glove in between pitches, he will do much better. Just my two cents.

Cards face the Phils tonight (Pineiro vs. Happ), Milwaukee opposes their former tenants, the Braves (Parra vs. Vazquez), and the Cubs have already beaten the Reds.

Astros record, sans Berkman: 0-0
