Quote from Series Preview

The Lucas Harrell experiment continues north of the border. The Astros have thrown him out there to sink or swim, after one start he is already flailing underwater - giving up five runs over three inning against the Angels. The same game as Buehrle's complete game shutout on July 25, 2013, Harrell have up three runs in three inning on four hits and two walks.

Melky Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion is two-for-three against Harrell, while Harrell has help Joey-Bats hitless in two at-bats.
