Matchup for G118 - Astros @ Brewers

The Astros try to avoid going 1-6 on a road trip today in the last game of this swing through the 3rd Level of Hell in the Astros season. They're 9.5 back for the first time since May 31. They're 5-12 in road games since the All-Star Break.

Roy Oswalt
Let's see what the world has in store for Oswalt today, after a pretty awful return from injury last time out. Hopefully he can go at least six innings.
