Houston Starts a Three Game Series Against the Cleveland Indians
The Houston Astros are looking to build off of their series win over the New York Yankees this week as they head into their weekend series against the Cleveland Indians. Houston will send Brad Peacock to the mound opposite Cleveland's starter Carlos Carrasco as Peacock is trying rebound from a couple of rough outings. He is 0-3 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.35 WHIP in his last five starts, as he is coming off a no-decision Saturday in the team's 10-7 loss to Boston. He allowed six runs (five earned), seven hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings. "His last start, he was trying to locate his off speed pitches and missed his spot, and damage was done," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "I think the biggest thing with Peacock moving forward is being able to command all his pitches."
First pitch for this game is set for 6:05pm from Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. The pregame will begin a 5:45pm and you can hear all the action right here on Sports Radio 1340 the FAN.
