PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Carlos Martinez (10-7, 3.34 ERA) vs. Astros RH Doug Fister (11-7, 3.61)

Martinez owns a 6-1 record while limiting the opposition to a .216 batting average on the road. Martinez has yet to face Houston but enjoys a 1.43 ERA in interleague play thus far.

The Cardinals are 15-6 in Martinez’s last 21 road starts.

The Astros are 1-7 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter.

Of special note: Houston SS Carlos Correa has hit safely in 11 straight games and 14 of his 15 contests this month.
