Matchup for G86 - Nationals @ Astros

The Astros will again try for .500 as they play the second in a four-game set with the Nationals. And this may be their best attempt of the year, as they send Roy Oswalt to the hill.

Roy Oswalt

Roy's ERA is under 4.00 (3.81, to be precise) for the first time since May 2, and has allowed three earned runs in his last 23IP.

Last three starts:

6/24 vKC67/18:27/10106/71

Let's do the splits:
vs Righties: 51x224, .228/.293/.402, 44K:17BB
vs Lefties: 59x203, .291/.335/.448, 45K:14BB

Scott Olsen

And the Nationals will send Scott Olsen to the mound for tonight's game. Olsen started the game that finished up yesterday, getting a No Decision on May 5 when he gave up 5ER in 5IP. Olsen comes into the game with a 6.04 ERA, but just came off his longest outing of the year, and maybe his strongest start since April 18, but he has been injured recently, pitching just twice since May 16.
