Here are today’s lineups. The Astros clinched their division late last night (does this mean no champagne celebration in the Rogers Center?) so there are lots of rookies on both sides.

Jon Berti is up with the team playing second base, and Kevin Pillar is batting second (sure). Tellez and Ureña get starts, and McGuire will catch for Reid-Foley.

Today's Lineups

Jake Marisnick - CF Billy McKinney - LF
Tony Kemp - 2B Kevin Pillar - CF
Carlos Correa - DH Justin Smoak - DH
Yuli Gurriel - SS Randal Grichuk - RF
Tyler White - 1B Rowdy Tellez - 1B
Kyle Tucker - LF Aledmys Diaz - 3B
J.D. Davis - 3B Reese McGuire - C
Max Stassi - C Richard Urena - SS
