2015 - Astros turn a 5-4-3 triple play in Detroit which sparks a 3-2 victory over the Tigers. Jonathan Villar, Jose Altuve and Chris Carter perform the trifecta off the bat of Ian Kinsler. 21-year-old Lance McCullers, Jr., earns his first big league win.
2008 - Jose Valverde takes a line drive off the face yet stays in the game to notch his league-leading 15th save in a 4-3 triumph against the Phillies. Hunter Pence had drilled two solo homers and Brandon Backe allowed just one run over 7-1/3rd innings but Valverde steals the spotlight with his amazing toughness.
2003 - After 51 major league appearances, righthander Scott Linebrink gets his first big league win - and is released the next day. A six-run first inning allows Linebrink to post a 7-5 victory over the Cubs, capped by a three-run homer from Jose Vizcaino. Injuries and illnesses force the Astros into the roster move that sends Linebrink back to the farm.
1988 - Mother Nature gets the save in a 3-0 victory at Pittsburgh. The game is called in the top of the ninth as swirling gale-force winds stop the action. Rafael Ramirez clings to third base for all he's worth. Dirt and debris litter the field. Mike Scott's eight scoreless innings are good enough.
1965 - Hard luck pitcher Ken Johnson loses his last game for Houston, 5-2 at the hands of the Giants, in typical fashion. Jim Ray Hart hits a three-run inside-the-park homer in the first inning when Jim Wynn fails to track the fly ball as it falls on the warning track behind him. Johnson is traded later that afternoon to Milwaukee for Lee Maye.

Houston Astros recap - 05/22/17 - Astros hang on for 1-0 win
Astros hang on for 1-0 win
Peacock, 'pen combine to one-hit Tigers

Peacock lets it fly
(c) Associated Press

Brad Peacock was spectacular in his first starting assignment of the season. Filling in for the injured Dallas Keuchel, Peacock held the Detroit Tigers to one hit and two walks while striking out eight in 4-1/3 innings of Houston's 1-0 victory. Three Astros relievers finished off the one-hit shutout.

Chris Devenski, Will Harris, and Ken Giles added two strikeouts apiece to give Houston pitchers a total of 14 for the night. Devenski went 2-2/3 innings to pick up his third win of the season and Giles pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 12th save.

The only run of the game came in the bottom of the first inning. Detroit starter Michael Fulmer walked leadoff batter George Springer and, one out later, Jose Altuve brought Springer home with a double down the leftfield line. With nine hits in the game, the Astros squandered several opportunities in the innings to come, but Peacock and company were able to make that lone run stand up.

The seventh inning, historically the Astros' most productive frame this season, looked extremely promising when Marwin Gonzalez and Yuli Gurriel got things started with back-to-back singles. But Fulmer rallied to strike out Alex Bregman and Springer, then got Josh Reddick to fly out.

Mikie Mahtook had the only hit for the Tigers, a one-out single in the third. Gonzalez and Reddick had two hits apiece for the Astros.

Game two of the four-game series is set for 7:10 Tuesday night at Minute Maid Park. Lance McCullers gets the start for the home team and Jordan Zimmerman takes the mound for the visitors.

Right-handed reliever Jordan Jankowski was called up by the Astros prior to Monday's game and should make his big league debut any day now. Lefty Ashur Tolliver, who impressed in a four inning outing on Sunday, was sent back to AAA Fresno. Also, minor league outfielder Andrew Aplin was designated for assignment.
