McCullers beat Seattle on April 4, when he gave up one run and five hits over six innings to improve to 4-2 with a 2.14 ERA in six career outings and has been dominating Nelson Cruz (1-for-10) while struggling with Robinson Cano (7-for-16). Instead, he led off the third inning.
Holding slim 2-1 margin entering the seventh, the Astros loaded the bases with two outs and Steve Cishek nearly got out of the situation, but Mitch Haniger's attempt at a spectacular diving catch came up empty when the ball popped out of his glove upon impact, allowing the bases to clear. With two outs against Steve Cishek, Brain McCann lashed one down the line that Haniger laid out for and had in his glove, but the impact upon landing jarred the ball loose and it trickled away from Haniger to the side wall, allowing the bases to clear and made it 5-1.
McCullers (lower back) will be activated prior to the contest to make his first starting assignment since June 8.
"I thought he was great", Astros manager A.J.
"It just came out last minute - unfortunate", Haniger said.
