Brewers: Following the game, manager Craig Counsell announced a series of moves, including the placement of Anderson on the 10-day DL with illness and the calling up of RHP Freddy Peralta from Class AAA Colorado Springs. The Sky Sox scratched Peralta from his start on Saturday, and is the best option the Brewers have in their organization for Sunday.
The Rockies are sending righty Jon Gray (4-4, 4.24 ERA) to the hill. "I think that's kind of what I needed was a little kick-start".
Story's first home run came in the first inning when he followed up a triple from Nolan Arenado with a 410 foot rocket to deep center field. Peralta froze Charlie Blackmon on a 92 mph fastball for a called third strike and was replaced by Matt Albers.
As he walked off the mound, the enormity of the moment nearly overcame him.
Davis, whose 14 saves lead the majors, said his location was bad on the pitch Pina knocked out of the park.
Peralta walked two in 5 2/3 innings and left after 98 pitches.
Astros 6, Rangers 1: Dallas Keuchel allowed three hits in seven shutout innings, Evan Gattis and Carlos Correa homered for the second straight game and Houston defeated visiting Texas. He makes his fourth career appearance and second start against the Rockies in this contest.

Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar homered and Domingo Santana had three hits for Milwaukee, which took three of the four games in the weekend series. "Yeah, he's a good pitcher". He has 46 strikeouts and 17 walks with only one homer allowed. "I hadn't seen good command. Just didn't locate very well", Gray said. The Red Bulls have won four of their last five.
"We're not happy about that".
