Brandon Laird does his best Matt Dominguez impression
Rick Ankiel gets the Astros on the board with a homerun to the Crawford Boxes.
Yes another game in which the Astros starter, Brad Peacock, failed to get out of the fifth inning. At points Peacock was cruising at others he was struggling to get guys out. I'm starting to wonder if he'll be the first rotation pitcher to be replaced. He's had some good outings but he just hasn't been effective enough and with the way the Astros have been relying on the bullpen eventually something has to give.
Jason Castro had a couple doubles which drives any fan who watched Sunday's game nuts. He was the last batter in Sunday's contest and ended up grounding out to third. Unlike some people I like Castro in the three-hole and I think he's going to hit eventually this season.
Matt Dominguez is going to have some more tests done but if he goes on the disabled list I'm fairly comfortable with Brandon Laird filling in.
