• First pitch: Peacock to start Sunday for Astros; Altuve back in lineup vs. Twins

    The Twins’ second home run hurt Peacock even more than the first. Peacock could remain in the Astros’ rotation after Sunday’s contest. Peacock was called up Sunday from Class AAA Oklahoma City during a week that saw the Astros scratch two starting pitchers, push back another and blow three saves in the initial two games against the Twins . That off-day means Peacock's next outing likely wouldn't be for another week if he gets the starting nod. Righty Brad Peacock tossed seven innings of three-run ball while striking out a career-high 10 in a 3-2 loss to Minnesota on Sunday, prompting manager Bo Porter not to rule out a full-time starting spot for him down the stretch. Three Twins runs followed while Harrell loaded the bases twice, and another winnable game soon became a 6-4 loss. “It’s definitely frustrating. Brett Oberholtzer is getting his chance in the rotation after locking down the Orioles last week, leaving only lefty Dallas Keuchel's spot potentially up for grabs with Jordan Lyles, Erik Bedard and Jarred Cosart entrenched as starters after Bud Norris was traded to Baltimore.
