Pitching Matchup

RHP Chris Devenski (0-0, 0.66 ERA, 0.88 WHIP) vs. RHP Jesse Hahn (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.00 WHIP)


Nothing went right in the final two innings of Friday's game. The only go thing is the Astros don't have to wait long to make up for their mistakes. The Astros get back to work just a little over 12 hours since yesterday's game.

One of the few bright spots this season, Chris Devenski gets a chance to take a bigger role with the Astros on Saturday. Devenski replaced Scott Feldman in the starting rotation. Devenski came to the Astros as part of the Brett Myers trade with the Chicago White Sox in 2012.

Devenski was originally slated to be a starter for the Astros' Triple-A team before being called into duty as the long man early in the season. Devenski has thrived in the bullpen, allowing just one run over 13 2/3 innings.

Jesse Hahn starts for the A's as the team struggles with some injuries. Hahn came as part of the Derek Norris trade with the San Deigo Padres. Hahn was 6-6 with a 3.35 ERA in 16 starts with the A's in 2015. Hahn faced the Astros once in 2015. He allowed three runs on five hits over six innings on May 20 in Houston.

At the Oakland Coliseum, Hahn was 3-3 with a 3.08 ERA in 10 home starts in 2015.
