Astros look to continue road success in Milwaukee

Apr 21, 2007 - 2:40 PM Houston (9-6) at Milwaukee (9-7), 7:05 pm EDT

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Houston Astros go after their sixth consecutive win when they visit the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Houston has been playing its best baseball on the road in the early season, posting a 6-1 record away from Minute Maid Park, where they are 3-5. Overall, Houston has won eight of its last nine games.

The Astros will send Wandy Rodriguez (0-1, 2.77 ERA) to the mound. The lefthander has not won a game since July 2. He was 0-2 with a 5.17 ERA in four appearances against the Brewers a year ago.

Chris Capuano (2-0, 2.81) will pitch for the Brewers, who have won each of the three games he's started this season. In his last start on Monday against the Reds, Capuano allowed three runs - none earned - on four hits and one walk over 5 2/3 innings. The lefthander hasn't allowed more than five hits in a game this year.

Milwaukee catcher Johnny Estrada has a nine-game hitting streak and has reached base successfully in 12 of his first 13 games.

Carlos Lee, who was traded from the Milwaukee Brewers to the Texas Rangers last season, made his first appearance against the Brewers as a member of the Houston Astros on Friday. Lee had one hit and a stolen base.
