The magical Fox wizard has decreed that today's game is to go to 58% of the USA as the primary game (announcers: Dick Stockton, better known as a football announcer, and Joe Girardi). As such, you will be able to watch it if you live in the following eclectic list of TV markets (in alphabetical order):
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Roy Oswalt is the Astros' best pitcher; he did not face the Cubs in any of the three previous meetings between the teams this year before yesterday. Lifetime he's 10-9, 3.77 vs. the Cubs; Ted Lilly got a no-decision in the home-opener loss to Houston on April 9, though he threw well enough (6 IP, 3 ER). Odd stat note for Lilly: he handles slugger Carlos Lee well (3-for-17, .176/.263/.294), but Mark Loretta, a decent but not great hitter, hits him all over the yard (5-for-14, 2 doubles, 2 HR, .357/.400/.929).
