Houston looks to keep their perfect record against former NL Central rival, St. Louis.

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The 2004 & 2005 playoff series between the Astros and Cardinals are long gone now. St. Louis is now more like the college roommate that you drifted apart from, you remember the good times but you don't talk anymore. Houston hopes to continue their offensive assault, after hanging 8 and 7 runs on the Phillies and Mets respectively . St. Louis will counter with their ace; Adam Wainwright, who is making his first start of the spring. On the bump for the Astros, Philip Humber will begin is his treck to winning a starting job and to just make the roster for that matter.
