#FreeSingelton has happened. A day after being called up and not in the lineup. Singleton is in the lineup as the designated hitter. A bit odd, because one Chris Carter is in the lineup and two as is Evan Gattis. Who would have guessed the Astros would send out a lineup with all three?
Brett Oberholtzer takes the mound for the Astros today. He is coming into today's game on a hot streak, allowing just five runs over his last 20 innings of work. In his most recent outing he allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Angels.
At home, Oberholtzer is 1-0 with a 1.65 ERA in three starts, compared to road starts he is 1-1 with a 4.02 ERA.

The Astros attempted to get Masahiro Tanaka, but he selected the Yankees before the 2014 season. Now he faces the Astros for the first time. He blew up in his last start, allowing 10 runs (seven earned) on ten hits over five innings against the Tigers.
