MLB Playoffs 2015: Astros & Royals ALDS Game 2 lineups; Carlos Gomez out

New, 91 comments

Carlos Gomez is out for a second straight game.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

For the second straight game, Carlos Gomez is out of the Astros lineup. Astros manager A.J. Hinch had remarked that Gomez would play in game two. Gomez is dealing with strained intercostal, that has limited his ability to swing the bat with tremendous amount of pain. Jake Marisnick stays in center, and the lineup stays the same from game one.

Jake Marisnick's play may have changed his mind after hitting a double, scoring a run, and making a game-saving catch in game two.
