The game started off in the Astros favor, after the 1st inning the Astros lead 2-0 on the Rays thanks to solo homers by Dexter Fowler and Matt Dominquez. Then in the 3rd the Astros added another run after Fowler doubled with one out, Jesus Guzman came through with a single to put the Astros up 3-1 on the Rays.

The problem was Brad Peacock was not very effective, Peacock acknowledged that even during throwing in the bull pen early he knew he was going to have to battle. Peacock battled seemingly during every at bat, going 3-2 on many occasions and walking 4 batters. Astros ended up pulling Peacock in the 4th and tired to piece together the game with the bullpen.

David Price on the other hand after the 3rd inning did not allow another run, after the 3rd only during the 5th inning were the Astros able to mount anything, getting Villar to 3rd base before George Springer struck out to end the threat.

During the 9th inning the Astros were able to add a little bit of drama to the game trailing by 1 run, the Astros had Dominguez on with a 1 out single then brought in Jose Altuve. After not being in the lineup for the past few games after being hit in the hand Altuve grounded up the middle with a double play ball but with Altuve’s hustle was able to beat out the throw. With Altuve on and two outs Bo Porter called upon Jon Singleton to save the game, but alas Singleton went down swinging on strike three.
