Luis Garcia gets his first start of the season against veteran Madison Bumgarner
The Astros got an auspicious start to the season beating division rival the Angels at home three games to one.
Tonight the Astros start a two game series against the rebuilding Arizona Diamondbacks. Last year’s Rookie of the Year runner up Luis Garcia takes the mound against Madison Bumgarner, whose glory days appear to be behind him.
Here’s the lineup. Apparently one day rest after four games was not enough for Yordan Alvarez. He’s getting the night off after last night’s bye.
