HOUSTON (AP) -- The Brewers head south to play a three-game series against the Houston Astros starting tonight.
Houston returns home from Pittsburgh after losing three-straight games to the Pirates.
In all the Astros have lost their last six games in a row, including two-out-of-three to Milwaukee last weekend at Miller Park.
The Brewers enter the series after winning two-of-three against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
But the Brewers lost the final game on Wednesday 9-3 after losing ace Ben Sheets to a groin strain in the third inning.
They were off yesterday.
Tonight's game begins at 7:05.
