Interesting that with a one-run lead in the ninth, A.J. Hinch stuck with Brad Peacock for a third inning of work rather than go to Ken Giles for the save. Giles last pitched on Sunday, so rest wasn't an issue here. He's pitched twice, both times with big leads in the ninth, so we don't really know how much trust Hinch has him right now. Or maybe we do. Either way, the Astros have a little subplot going on in the midst of their strong start.
