Late game tonight, in which Roy Oswalt tries to beat Josh Geer to extend the Astros' 2009 winning streak over the Padres to four games. The Padres came to town in May, and left without a win in the three game series.
The Padres are 33-41, 5-10 over their last 15 games, 14 games back of the Dodgers, and just took two of three from the Rangers in Arlington. Heath Bell has converted 20 of 21 save opportunities.
The Astros are 35-38, are 8-7 over their last 15 games, are four games back of the NL Central lead, and the bullpen has 13 losses.
Incidentally, this is a rematch of G31 that the Astros won 12-5. Oswalt went 6IP and got his first win of the season.
Let's revisit, shall we, that game?
