Matchup for G115 - Astros @ Marlins

The Astros can pull back a split with a win tonight, and honestly, this could have been a series sweep. It's too depressing of a topic to go back and look to see how many winnable games the Astros could have pulled off - but didn't. So we'll just move on.

Mike Hampton
Is this the game where Hampton is pitching for his job? Yorman Bazardo hasn't pitched since August 8, so maybe he's the designated reliever for tonight. We'll see how Mike Hampton's Lance Harbor knees hold up...
