Springer, Stassi, and Peacock....yes Peacock...drive in two each.

MLB: Houston Astros at Arizona Diamondbacks Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Houston Astros starting pitcher Brad Peacock only went 4 23 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits. Since the All-Star Break, that would have normally spelled a loss for the Astros. But not on Tuesday.

The Astros scored five runs in the second inning and never looked back in a 9-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

Corpus Christi native Anthony Banda has knocked around in the second inning. J.D. Davis and Max Stassi led off with a pair of doubles. Jake Mrsinick followed with a bloop single. George Springer doubled and a triple from Alex Bregman set the score of 4-0.

Bregman would score off a wild pitch to make 5-0.

Peacock got into the scoring act in the third inning, smacking a double to right field, scoring Davis and Marinsick.

Yuli Gurriel triples home Jose Altuve up 8-0 in the fourth. Stassi completed his 2-for-4 with a solo home run.

Francis Martes, Chris Devenski, Luke Gregerson, and Francisco Liriano combined to pitch 4 13 clean innings, striking out eight and walking three.

Banda gave up eight runs on nine hits over four innings.
