Frustration level was high last night as our offense was shut out by J.A. Happ and the Astros bullpen, despite outhitting Houston. Tonight we'll go at it again and hopefully out boys can bring some runs home rather than leaving so many men on base.

Kip Wells struggled, but only gave up a couple of runs. Tonight, Ross Ohlendorf will take on the task of keeping the Astros off the board and hope our offense can come through this time. Ohlendorf has yet to get a win against Houston, holding a 0-6 all-time record against them. He pitched against them on June 25th and was roughed up for 5 earned runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings. Tonight he'll try to turn it around and keep hopes of a series win alive .

Pitching for the Astros will be 21-year-old Jordan Lyles, who earned a win in his start against us on June 26th. He gave up just one run on six hits in 6 1/3 innings against our Padres and will try to repeat that success here at Petco Park.

Carlos Quentin, who was scratched from last night's lineup, will take a scheduled day off today. Here's how our boys will line up against Lyles:

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!!
