Matchup for G94 - Cardinals @ Astros

Astros get a surprising win last night, and a favorable matchup tonight in the Sixth Annual Second-Half Race for the Playoffs...

Wandy Rodriguez
Wandy has allowed one earned run in his last three starts, totalling 22IP, and has 0ER in his last 17IP. Yep, that's an 0.41 ERA.

Wandy has pitched against the Cardinals this season, in G6 @ St Louis, and threw 6IP, 5H/3ER, 4K:3BB, and of course getting the loss in a 3-0 defeat.

Last three starts:

Todd Wellemeyer

Wellemeyer comes in to this game 7-7, but with a Moehlerian 5.56 ERA and is basically pitching for his job. He has 64Ks:47BBs in 100.1IP, and has given up 13 homers so far this season. Wellemeyer threw a quality start on July 2, but that was his first one since May 22 vs Kansas City - a span of seven starts.

Wellemeyer was used in relief that last time out - hence the weird stats...
