Game Thread #44: Milwaukee Brewers (26-17) @ Houston Astros (19-25)

The Brewers kick off their weekend series against the Houston Astros Friday night with their ace, Freddy Peralta on the mound.

The Astros have stumbled early in the season, but a recent hot stretch has them more reminiscent of the team that won the AL West last year.

Brice Turang will bat leadoff, as has been the customary option lately, while fielding second base. Joey Ortiz sees his more consistent playing time continue with the start at third base. Willy Adames and Jake Bauers round out the rest of the infield.

William Contreras will start at catcher as he looks to continue his All-Star campaign.
