The Houston Astros had their first extra-inning loss on Monday and Tuesday the team found out that All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa will be out 6-to-8 weeks. The Astros whipped away that sour taste on Tuesday night with a 6-2 win over the Seattle Mariners at Minute Maid Park.
Brad Peacock that set the tone for the Astros. Peacock's starts could be numbered with Dallas Keuchel on a rehab assignment. But before that happens, Peacock kept the Mariners in control for seven innings — allowing one run on three hits.
The Astros scored a run in the first and second inning. Houston loaded the bases and Yuli Gurriel lifted a ball to center, allowing George Springer to score on a sacrifice fly. Springer opened the game with a hit-by-pitch that scared Astros face to lose the second star — X-Rays are negative on Springer's hand.
Evan Gattis put the Astros up 2-0 with a solo blast in the second. A pair of doubles from Nori Aoki and Springer scored two runs in the fourth inning.
Peacock worked out a jam in the fifth inning, allowing only one run. He strained a runner at third with back-to-back walks.
Gattis had his second home run in the sixth inning — Gattis had his eighth multiple home run game in his career.
Alex Bregman manufactured a run in the seventh. Bregman led off with a single, moved to second on a wild pitch. He would score on a Jose Altuve single.
Luke Gregerson closed out the game over 1 1⁄3 innings, striking out one and picking up his first save.
