  • Houston Astros' Jose Altuve is tagged out by Los Angeles Angels third baseman Yunel Escobar while trying to stretch a double into a triple during the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday

"I gave us a chance", Chavez said.

Hours after the Big 12 Conference school announced Tuesday that its opener was being moved back a day to accommodate television, Texas Tech said the game would remain on September 2 as originally scheduled. "He's doing something special right now".

Meanwhile, the Astros are 19-7 in their last 26 Wednesday games, and 4-1 in Keuchel's last five starts.

Darvish (1-2) faced the minimum through five, but came apart in the sixth and lost for the fourth time in six starts at the Oakland Coliseum. It was Reddick's first home run since joining the Astros. Reddick struck out in the third.

"To walk out of here with a nice clean win from a pitching standpoint. we've just got to find different ways to win and today was a unique one", Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. "He provided a nice little spark when we needed it".

The lone run surrendered by Keuchel came off an RBI single from Yunel Escobar into left field in the third inning, scoring Danny Espinosa. Chavez struck out five and surrendered two walks in seven innings. Keuchel, in four starts, has allowed three runs across 28 innings. "There's still a lot of games to play so I still want to be able to be able to play most of the game". "For me it's about trying to put up quality at-bats".

From the beginning, Keuchel had run support.

The homer by Simmons gave Los Angeles a 1-0 lead in the second inning. Cameron Maybin made an attempted sliding catch but just knocked it down.

Astros: RHP Joe Musgrove (1-0) takes the mound for his third start Tuesday.

"I was pounding the strike zone", Ramirez said. "I said last night I had to mix my pitches". I think looking at the guys in the clubhouse... "I'm feeling pretty good with it". Alex Bregman had an RBI single in the second.

In the eighth, Altuve would drive in Reddick on a double to center.

Correa sustained the injury after being hit by a pitch in Saturday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Nolasco is 6-1 with a 3.83 ERA in nine appearances (eight starts) against the Astros in his career. His previous best was six against Atlanta on June 15, 2016.

"Ben's going to get his share of starts for sure and Cam's going to play a lot", Scioscia said.

Texas Tech initially said the game was being switched that Labor Day weekend after a request from the Big 12 and Fox Sports. Correa suffered a right hand contusion on Saturday against Oakland. Correa has been held out of the lineup for three consecutive games. "Just a few mistakes and a couple balls they took advantage of".

The Angels optioned C Carlos Perez to Triple-A Salt Lake before the game and called up C Juan Graterol.
