Astros Vs. Cubs: Matt Garza Starts On Saturday

The Chicago Cubs grabbed a 4-0 victory on Friday behind a stellar performance from Paul Maholm (four hits allowed over 8.1 innings), and Matt Garza will try to keep that trend going against Major League Baseball's worst road team when he takes the mound on Saturday afternoon. Houston starter J.A. Happ (6-7, 4.83 ERA) has struggled on the road, posting a 7.36 ERA over 25.2 innings away from Minute Maid Ballpark. Meanwhile, Garza (3-6, 4.06 ERA) has been strong at home, compiling a 2.36 ERA over 34.1 innings at Wrigley Field this season.
