Minnesota Twins

Backed by solo home runs from Jake Marisnick and Tyler White, Brad Peacock produced his third consecutive strong outing as the Houston Astros opened a season-long 10-game homestand with a 3-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday. After surrendering a season-worst seven earned runs in an 8-2 loss at Minnesota on May 2, Peacock (5-2) has allowed one earned run over his last three starts and 17 innings, good for an 0.53 ERA. Peacock has produced 24 strikeouts against just five walks during that stretch, including nine strikeouts over five innings against the White Sox.
