HOUSTON -- Having dropped consecutive series for the first time since early June, the Houston Astros will open a critical seven-game homestand starting Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays with an injury-ravaged roster contributing to their slump. Cheap Nationals Jerseys .After losing two of three at home to the New York Yankees, the Astros (55-49) were swept in Detroit, bookending a demoralizing 3-2 loss on Saturday night with two blowout losses.Houston also lost third baseman Luis Valbuena and center fielder Carlos Gomez to right hamstring strains on consecutive days and will learn of the status of utility infielder Marwin Gonzalez on Monday. Gonzalez has been sidelined by hand soreness.The Astros have lost five of six games and, after clawing to within 2 1/2 games of the Texas Rangers last week, dropped six games behind in their pursuit of the American League West pennant.The opener against Toronto could be influenced by more roster flux. Right-hander Doug Fister is slated to start but might land on the paternity list in anticipation of the birth of his first child. That situation facilitated the arrival on Sunday of right-hander Joe Musgrove (7-4, 2.74 ERA in the minors this year), who could make his major league debut.Were still in a holding pattern, Astros manager A.J. Hinch told MLB.com. This may be a photo finish for the game tomorrow. Until my phone lights up with a text or a call from (Fister), its sort of status quo.Right-hander Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.92) will get the start for the Blue Jays. Stroman was at his best in July, finishing 2-0 with a 3.71 ERA in five starts, notching 30 strikeouts against four walks in 34 innings.Stroman is 0-1 with a 15.00 ERA in his career against the Astros, having surrendered five runs, seven hits and one walk with one strikeout in three innings in his lone start against them.Having assumed the role of staff ace after the offseason departure of left-hander David Price, Stroman has endured an inconsistent year, one that took a positive turn in July when he posted his best numbers to date.The Blue Jays (59-46) briefly surged into first place in the AL East before dropping their series finale against the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 in 12 innings on Sunday. The loss was their first against the Orioles after a five-game series winning streak and capped a month in which Toronto finished 16-8, its best record in any month this season.Locked in a battle with the Orioles and Red Sox for the AL East title while also fending off a host of contenders, including the Astros, in the wild-card chase, the Blue Jays have been subject to countless rumors as the trading deadline nears. And while the recent additions of right-hander Joaquin Benoit and outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. are likely to provide a lift, they dont preclude Toronto from doing more.To be honest with you, I dont think about it too much, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told MLB.com of the rampant trade rumors. Weve already made a couple of deals, so you never know. Everybodys rumored to be going here or going there, but you dont hear about anybody out in that room. Wholesale Nationals Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. http://www.cheapnationalsjerseys.com/ . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career.MILWAUKEE -- The last team in the major leagues to produce a shutout this season, the Brewers now have seven in the teams last 30 games. Including two straight over Miami. Yovani Gallardo and four relievers combined on a five hitter and Jonathan Lucroy and Rickie Weeks belted home runs in Milwaukees 6-0 victory over the Marlins on Saturday night, extending Miamis scoreless streak to 24 innings. "Yovani had great command today. He was really efficient," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "When we command the ball were tough to get a lot of runs off of and the relievers keep doing their jobs." Roenicke said he was confident his staff would come around during their 67-game stretch to start the season without a shutout. "Some of the guys we knew were going to pitch well eventually," he said. "We all knew that sooner or later (Wily) Peralta was going to put it together once he got his command. We knew (Gallardo) was going to pitch better. Its good to see. "Early in the season we were getting down by so many runs early. It was tough on the offence. It was tough to stay in a ball game." That the Brewers pitchers have faced the NLs worst offensive team the past two games shouldnt diminish the accomplishments of his staff, Roenicke said. "I just know when we dont pitch well everyone hits us hard," he said. Gallardo (8-8) gave up five hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking out five and walking two. Lucroy collected four hits in four at-bats and finished a triple short of a cycle. "He can really hit," Roenicke said. "This year, I know he didnt start off well. But we really believe this is a guy who can drive in runs and hit for average." Lucroy knew hed come around. "Its just a matter of putting the work in," he said. "Im trying to stay within myself and find an approach that works. Im pretty much keeping it simple." The Brewers continued their dominance at home against the Marlins, having won 13 of the last 16 games at Miller Park, dating to 2009. The Brewers got to Miami starter Nathan Eovaldi (2-1) for two runs in the first inning. Norichika Aoki and Jean Segura hit back-to-back singles to start the frame and Ryan Braun followed with a two-run double off the base of the centre field wall. The Brewers loaded the bases later in the iinning but failed to score. Cheap Nationals Jerseys Authentic. The Brewers extended their lead to 3-0 in the third when Lucroy hit a home run that caromed off the heel of the glove of Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton. "Baseball is a crazy game," Lucroy said. "I told (Stanton) I owe him dinner when we play in Miami next year." Stanton was frustrated by his failure to make the catch. "Little things like that hurt us. It wouldnt have been a homer," he said. Weeks led off the fourth inning with a homer to centre field. Jeff Bianchi followed with a double and later scored on Aokis single, giving the Brewers a 5-0 advantage. Lucroys double drove in another run, as the Brewers sent eight batters to the plate in the inning. Eovaldi surrendered 10 hits and six runs in four innings. He struck out five and walked two. Miamis bullpen held Milwaukee scoreless over the final four innings. "Most of the counts, I was behind and the ball was up in the zone. Its frustrating. Its tough to pitch like that," Eovaldi said. Lack of control hurt Eovaldi, Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "He struggled with his command, he was up in the zone with his fastball, and they hit him pretty good," Redmond said. The Marlins loaded the bases in the sixth inning with one out, but Logan Morrison grounded into an inning-ending double play. "I thought we came out flat these first two games, especially offensively," Redmond said. "Were getting completely shut down. Were not getting guys on base and were not getting big hits."
