Game Thread 126, August 18, 2019, 3:07 CDT, Astros vs A’s

Rogelio Armenteros was optioned back to AAA last night after he fulfilled his duty, filling in for injured starter Gerrit Cole. He ate four innings, allowing five runs, but there was a dose of bad luck mixed in those five runs.

The Astros went on to lose last night 8-4, despite to homers by ROYdan.

Today Brad Peacock returns from IL, presumably in the role of relief pitcher for now.

Today Zack Greinke gets his third start as an Astro. Now is the time for him to show stopper stuff, as the Astros have lost five straight, and if they lose again the A’s will only be 5.5 games behind the Astros for the lead in the AL West.

Here is today’s Astros lineup.
