Last night the Astros could not convert numerous scoring opportunities and lost a tough one, 3-2 to the Reds. It was the first time the Astros have lost two games in a row since May 23rd, which happened against the White Sox.
Last night the Astros faced the Reds’ ace, Luis Castillo, but tonight it is the Reds’ turn to face an ace. It’s Justin Verlander time. In return the Reds send Anthony DeSclafani to face the Stros.
Tonight Jake Marisnick returns to the starting lineup after a minor knee issue.
Here is the Astros lineup and media access information for tonight.
