Yo goes against Hall, ‘Stros
Yovani Gallardo will try to get back on track after a pair of substandard outings tonight when he faces former Brewers Bill Hall. Carlos Lee and Nelson Figueroa and the rest of the Astros in the opener of a three-game series and a six-game homestand at Miller Park.
Here are the lineups for both teams, with notes on the Astros courtesy of my outstanding colleague Brian McTaggart:
CF Michael Bourn — Hitting .345 with seven walks in his last 15 games.
SS Angel Sanchez — Has started every game at shortstop this year.
RF Hunter Pence — Leads the club in homers and RBIs.
LF Carlos Lee — Has gone 0-for-9 since snapping a season-long six-game hit streak.
1B Brett Wallace — Hit .417 in the three-game series against Mets.
3B Chris Johnson — Hitting .300 with three RBIs in last five games.
2B Bill Hall — Makes his first start since Wednesday, when he injured ankle.
C Humberto Quintero — Is in an 0-for-10 slump.
RHP Nelson Figueroa — Is 3-2 with a 4.19 ERA in 12 career games against Brewers (four starts).
