 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Astros ace Roy Oswalt will miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the Dodgers because of soreness in his upper chest that developed Friday night in Pittsburgh.
Oswalt threw his usual between-starts bullpen session Sunday, but still felt some discomfort in cartilage located between his sternum and rib cage. He is scheduled to start again July 31 in Atlanta, meaning he would go 11 days between starts.
``If all goes well, I don't think Roy will need more than one start,'' manager Phil Garner said Sunday. ``Roy felt it a little bit today. It was a little bit better, but it's probably better this way.''
Oswalt (9-6, 3.80 ERA) leads the Astros in victories and was named to the NL All-Star team earlier this month as an injury substitute for Atlanta's John Smoltz, but did not pitch.
Despite initially feeling pain during the fifth inning Friday, Oswalt pitched into the seventh inning of Houston's 2-1 win against the Pirates. Oswalt's 107th career victory moved him past Nolan Ryan and tied him with J.R. Richard for fourth place in club history. Oswalt was a 20-game winner in 2004 and 2005 and is 64-36 over the last four seasons.
With Oswalt out, Matt Albers (2-4) will start Wednesday against Los Angeles in Houston.
