Houston Astros at Milwaukee Brewers [ESPN2 | 8:05 PM ET]

Astros: Randy Wolf is 2-0 in four starts since joining Houston with a 3.63 ERA. Wolf was roughed up in a previous trip to Milwaukee on July 27, surrendering four runs and seven hits in 4.1 innings. However, the Astros scored seven runs in the fifth inning of that game to win 11-6. He is 1-6 in 12 road starts with an inflated 6.54 ERA but owns a 5-3 career mark against the Brewers.

Astros are 16-5 in their last 21 games overall.
Astros are 3-11 in the last 14 meetings at Milwaukee.

Key Injuries - OF Carlos Lee (.314; finger) is on the 15-day DL.

PROJECTED SCORE: 3

Brewers (-280, O/U 7.5): Outside of a no-decision against the Cubs at home back on July 28, CC Sabathia has been outstanding. Sabathia has allowed two earned runs or less in seven of his eight starts with Milwaukee, going 7-0 with a stellar 1.55 ERA. He will need to deal with a Houston lineup that he has never faced, which has scored an NL-high 70 runs in the last 11 games. Sabathia has won 10 straight decisions.

Brewers are 9-3 in their last 12 games on grass.
The OVER is 7-2-1 in Milwaukee's last 10 home games.

Key Injuries - OF Ryan Braun (.301; back) has returned.

PROJECTED SCORE: 4



Detroit Tigers at Texas Rangers [8:05 PM ET]

Tigers: Kenny Rogers will be trying to end a personal four-game losing streak when he visits his former team. Rogers is 6-3 lifetime vs. Texas with a 4.24 ERA, but he has struggled a bit on the road this season with a 5-6 mark and 5.40 ERA. He has dropped his last two starts at home after going 2-2 in his previous four outings - all away from home. Rogers escaped a loss the last time he faced the Rangers after giving up six runs and nine hits in just 3.1 innings back on April 23, as the Tigers erupted for 11 runs in the fifth inning of a 19-6 win.

Tigers are 3-7 in Rogers' last 10 road starts.
The UNDER is 6-2 in Rogers' last 8 road starts.

Key Injuries - OF Magglio Ordonez (.317; rest) is expected to return.
1B Carlos Guillen (.284; rest) is expected to return.

PROJECTED SCORE: 4 (UNDER - Total Play of the Day)

Rangers (-115, O/U 12): Scott Feldman hopes to rebound from an unforgettable performance last time out at Boston. Feldman surrendered 12 runs and 10 hits in only 2.2 innings of an eventual 19-17 loss last Tuesday, the fourth setback in his last four starts for the Rangers. He has pitched slightly better at home this season, going 1-2 with seven no-decisions in 10 starts with a 4.57 ERA. This will be his first career start vs. Detroit.

Rangers are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings at Texas.
The UNDER is 7-2-2 in the last 11 meetings at Texas.

Key Injuries - OF Milton Bradley (.317; illness) is day-to-day.

PROJECTED SCORE: 5
