Starlin Back In Lineup

Starlin Castro is back in the lineup after a two game timeout from Manager, Mike Quade.  We’ll see if the rest period will rejuvenate Starlin as the Cubs try to take the series with Houston.  Since Quade has taken over, the Cubs seem more relaxed as they head down the stretch.
