Friedrich is 2-1 on the season, including a win in his last game, giving up 3 runs over 5 innings. Lucas Harrell gets the nod for Astros and comes into the games with a 4-3 record and a 3.72 ERA. Harrell dominated the Rockies in his first start of the season, holding Colorado scoreless through 7 innings on only 3 hits. In his last start, Harrell beat the Dodgers going 7 1/3 innings while giving up one run.

Dexter Fowler starts in the lead0ff spot, in his last 12 games Fowler has a .481/.563/1.074 slash line. That’s pretty good.
