Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch announced Friday at RHP Brad Peacock will get the start in game three of the ALDS.

Peacock, 29, is 13-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 34 games (21 starts) with the Astros this season. Peacock is 10-2 with a 3.22 ERA in 21 starts for the Astros.

He finished the season with a 3-0 record and 2.57 ERA in five starts during the month of September. He allowed two earned runs on four hits over five innings in his final regular-season start against the Red Sox. He only threw 79 pitches in that start at Fenway Park.

In Game 4 Charlie Morton will get the call, but no word yet on who the Red Sox will send out.
