08/19/2006 - Astros (Rodriguez) @ Brewers (Bush) 6:05pm CDT


Houston Astros (58 - 64)

Wandy Rodriguez LHP (9-6, 5.22 ERA, 1.59 WHIP)


Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Aug. 18 when Brandon Backe was placed on the 15-day DL. Rodriquez makes the start in place of Roy Oswalt, who needs more time to allow his bruised right wrist to heal. The left-hander made five starts for Round Rock, posting a 2-2 record with a 6.92 ERA. Rodriguez, who was 9-6 with a 5.22 ERA for the Astros prior to being optioned to Triple-A on July 21, allowed two runs over six innings for a no-decision in his only start against Milwaukee this season.


Note: Houstons Long Man, Dave Borkowski (3.48 ERA, 1.10 WHIP), was supposed to get the start today. With Backe going to the DL, it appears recently called up Rodriguez will get the start. Some sites conflict each other.




Milwaukee Brewers (58 - 64)

David Bush RHP (8-9, 4.69 ERA 1.21 WHIP)


After going 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his first two starts of August, Bush surrendered a single Pirates run in each of the first four innings on Monday before working a scoreless fifth. But he was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the sixth and took the 4-2 loss, his fifth versus three runs in 14 road starts. Bush has been much better at Miller Park, going 5-4 with a 3.65 ERA -- an ERA almost two points lower than his road mark.

Wandy has handled us rather well in his short career (2-0, 3.44 ERA in 3 starts). Hopefully Bush can pitch well and we can get him a couple runs.

Ned has plenty of right handed options to use against Wandy. I am expecting a big night from Hall and Hart. I was kind of looking forward to seeing Nix in the lineup, but whatever. Looks like Wandy was getting roughed up a bit in AAA.
