The last time the Astros came to San Diego, they lost Game 7 of the ALCS to the Tampa Bay Rays back in October.

Tonight, the Padres look to hand them another loss.

Jake Arrieta comes off the IL to make his second Padres start against Jose Urquidy, who is also making his return to the mound for the first time since June 29.
