Chicago White Sox

Astros right-hander Brad Peacock provided Houston a strong pitching performance Monday that, in a vacuum, was more than sufficient for the opener of an extended four-game series. From a macro perspective, Peacock set the Astros on the path to winning the series by twirling five shutout innings in a 3-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox. With ace right-handers Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole scheduled to start the next two games at Minute Maid Park, Houston earned a distinct advantage by claiming the first contest, particularly with the White Sox utilizing the “opener” strategy on Monday and working through five members of their bullpen.

New York Mets third baseman Todd Frazier and Washington outfielder Adam Eaton had a heated exchange between innings that was caught by a television camera Monday night at Citi Field. The two players jawed at each other from a distance, prompting several Nationals to take a few steps out of the dugout before Frazier and Eaton were guided in opposite directions. Eaton took his position in right field, and Frazier was led back to the Mets bench on the first base side.

The New York Mets five-game losing streak came to an end after defeating the Washington Nationals 5-3 in MLB. New York scored four runs in the first three innings to take a lead they would never relinquish against Washington on Monday. It was a nice distraction from earlier headlines, which included questions surrounding manager Mickey Callaway’s job and a non-baseball related injury to Yoenis Cespedes.

David Price is scheduled to return from the injured list Monday afternoon to start for the visiting Boston Red Sox in the opener of a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Price (1-2, 3.75 ERA) has not pitched since May 2 because of tendinitis in his pitching elbow. The left-hander will be facing Blue Jays right-hander Edwin Jackson (0-0, 3.60), who set a major-league record of playing for 14 teams when he made his first start for the Blue Jays in San Francisco against the Giants last week.

Just when things were starting to appear rosy for the Astros, injury concerns have crept into the picture as Houston returns to Minute Maid Park, set for its longest homestand of the season. With All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve already on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring strain, the Astros lost utility infielder/outfielder Aledmys Diaz and outfielder George Springer to injury in Boston while claiming their three-game weekend series. Diaz, like Altuve, was sidelined by hamstring discomfort while Springer departed in the fifth inning of the Astros’ 4-3 loss Sunday with lower-back stiffness.
