Now, they're one of the hottest teams and on the brink of their longest single-season road winning streak in almost eight years. The Marlins look for a seventh straight win as they arrive for the last stop of their nine-game trip Monday night against Wandy Rodriguez and the Houston Astros. Miami (14-14) was reeling last Monday with eight losses in nine games, as the club was struggling to live up to its lofty expectations after spending big in free agency and bringing in former White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. It's only taken a week for that to begin changing. The Marlins have won the first six games of this trip after beating San Diego 6-3 on Sunday.

Astros' offense freezes vs. Marlins, Cards

HOUSTON The deferential hat tips were obligatory: first toward Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright on Sunday, then another directed at Marlins right-hander Carlos Zambrano on Monday night. But for an offense that had seemingly discovered its stride, the Astros' sudden futility could be described as curious if concerning felt a tad overzealous. Wainwright and Zambrano have...
