J.A. Happ

J.A. Happ takes the mound tonight as the Phillies take on the Astros and try once again to reduce their magic number below three.

Happ (11-4, 2.79 ERA) won his last start, against the Brewers, going 5 2/3 innings, allowing six hits and two runs, while striking out seven. He is a leading candidate for NL Rookie of the Year.

The Astros send Wilton Lopez (0-0, 8.44 ERA) to the hill, for his first major league start.
