Mills looking forward to returning home
CINCINNATI -- Astros manager Brad Mills said the club is looking forward to returning home, especially after spending 13 of the past 16 games away from Minute Maid Park.

"Last time we were home it's like we were just stopping by," said Mills of a brief three-game homestand against the Dodgers.

Following Sunday's game in Cincinnati, Houston heads home to begin three-game series against the Mets, Cardinals and Marlins.

The homestand kicks off with a 50th Anniversary celebration when former Astros outfielder Richard Hidalgo throws out a ceremonial first pitch prior to the series opener against New York. Hidalgo will also sign autographs at Minute Maid Park before the game.

Pomp and circumstance aside, the road-weary Astros are eager to return to Houston.

"It'll be real nice to get back home, especially for a long homestand," Mills said.
