Astros Vs. Cubs: Starting Lineups For Tuesday's Game

Chicago pitcher Chris Volstad will take the mound in search of his first victory of 2012 on Tuesday evening, as the Cubs will look take game two of their series with the Astros from Wrigley Field.

Volstad has walked away with a loss in every single one of his eight decisions this year for the Cubs, and has struggled mightily to find consistency with a 6.94 ERA over 11 starts. The 25-year-old right-hander will hope to lean on his offense against the Astros on Tuesday however, after Chicago hitters came to play in Monday's opener with seven runs on 10 hits.

First baseman Anthony Rizzo keyed the game one victory with a 4-for-5 performance from the plate, and is now hitting .306 on the season. The talented youngster will be counted on for another big game on Tuesday against Houston's groundball-inducing right-hander Lucas Harrell.
