Bumgarner, D-backs look for success against Astros

The Houston Astros are clinging to a winning record despite being forced to use an inexperienced, injury-depleted and overworked bullpen, so Monday's day off was more than welcome.

Houston played extra innings in three of its last four games, and it had to turn to Framber Valdez, Tuesday's scheduled starting pitcher, for 6 1/3 innings of relief in a 6-5, 11-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday in Anaheim, Calif.

After a much-needed day of rest for its bullpen Monday, the Astros face the struggling Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night in Phoenix.
