Today the Astros come to town. Homer Bailey (RHP, 10-9, 4.09 ERA) hasn’t gotten a win in a while, including in his last appearance against the Astros’ 10-game winner last Saturday. And he gets to face off against Lucas Harrell (RHP, 10-9, 3.81 ERA) again today. Hopefully the team will come up with a little more run support for him this time.
Enter for the chance to buy NLDS tickets

I remember entering this in 2010. While I didn’t get the chance to by NLDS tix back then, I do still possess the NLCS tickets that never had a corresponding game. I bet that woudn’t be the case this year.
