Cardinals Vs. Astros Preview: St. Louis Tries To Bounce Back On Saturday Night

The St. Louis Cardinals dropped the first of their three-game set against the Houston Astros on Friday night, but they get a chance on Saturday to even the series and to prevent the Houston Astros from setting a six-game winning streak at home. Houston hasn't won six straight contests at home since August of 2010, so it will be up to Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia (2-1, 2.78 ERA) to keep the Astros away from hitting that mark again. He will be opposed by 27-year old right-hander, Bud Norris (1-1, 5.46 ERA), who is coming off a strong outing of 6.2 innings, seven strikeouts, one walk and three earned runs against the New York Mets on Monday.
