Jul 25, 2008 8:36 PM

by GT Staff | Houston Astros at Milwaukee Brewers: The Astros were swept in Houston by the lowly Pirates and now run into the buzzsaw the Brewers have become since acquiring CC Sabathia.

Houston has lost four straight while Milwaukee is on an eight game win streak. The Astros are 22-30 on the road while the Brewers are an impressive 31-17 in The House That Miller Built.

Pitching for the Astronauts is Wandy Rodriguez (5-3, 3.31 ERA) a right-hander who is having a great season after a dismal 2007. Rodriguez is making his first start ever against Milwaukee. The Brewers give the ball to Manny Parra (9-2, 3.68), a pitcher a lot of folks would be talking about if not for the acquisition of Sabathia and the success of staff ace and All-Star Ben Sheets. Right-hander Parra has won eight straight decisions.

The price may be steep, but the BrewCrew is suddenly a train not to be derailed with Sabathia, Sheets and Parra now possibly becoming MLBs best starting trio. You know who BREWERS.
