    导出博客文章HOUSTON -- The Astros had established such a comfort in the reliability of their
    high-leverage relievers that little could prepare them for what unfolded on
    Friday night against the Angels.Right-handers Luke Gregerson and Ken Giles, half
    of the Astros quartet of rock-solid relief pitchers (a group that also includes
    right-handers Chris Devenski and Will Harris) combined to cough up a three-run
    lead in a 10-6 loss that severely damaged the Astros playoff aspirations.
    Gregerson allowed a run on two hits in the eighth inning; Giles blew his fifth
    save by coming apart at the seams in the ninth.Giles surrendered six earned runs
    on three hits and three walks, inflating his ERA from 3.47 to 4.31 in the
    process. With eight games remaining in their season and their deficit for the
    second American League wild card now 21/2 games behind the Tigers, the Astros
    were left floored by the development involving Giles in particular.Toughest
    inning of the year, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. For a lot of reasons.Added
    Giles: I didnt do my job. Didnt make my pitches. Thats all I can say. I just
    didnt do it.The Astros (81-73) have lost twice as many games to the Angels
    (68-86) over the first two games of this series than they did in the first 12
    meetings between the teams this season. At best, they can salvage a split of the
    four-game set with victories on Saturday night and Sunday.Right-hander Brad
    Peacock (0-0, 2.86 ERA) will make his fourth start for the Astros in the third
    game of the series. Peacock, who has filled in admirably for injured left-hander
    Dallas Keuchel (left shoulder inflammation), is 3-0 with a 4.50 ERA in five
    career games (three starts) against the Angels. He has not pitched against Los
    Angeles this season.Angels right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (4-6, 5.26 ERA) will make
    his 33rd appearance and 21st start of the season. Chacin is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA
    in five career games (four starts) against the Astros, including 0-1 with a 9.00
    ERA in two games this season.Chacin, who will make his 16th start for the
    Angels, has toggled between the rotation and bullpen for the Angels, rejoining
    the rotation on Sept. 14 against the Mariners after making four appearances out
    of the bullpen between Aug. 27 and Sept. 10. In his last four starts for the
    Angels, Chacin has pitched to a 0.87 ERA.I think Jhoulys has the ability to do
    both, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Hes done very well out of our pen and
    recently with some adjustments that hes made hes been very effective as a
    starter. I think his upside is still as a major league starter and I know thats
    what he wants to do and I think he can be effective doing that but if not hes
    shown he can throw out of our bullpen.

    . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for
    Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a
    remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the
    early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth.

    . 8 Kansas to a 64-63 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday
    night. The freshman from Vaughan, Ont. Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain
    is being suspended for another year, on top of the 10-game suspension hes
    currently serving that is scheduled to end Monday, and there are doubts he will
    get to play again in the NFL after recently missing another drug test, NFL
    sources told ESPN.McClain is likely to appeal the latest suspension, according
    to sources.?McClain was serving thec current suspension for testing positive for
    opiates.... I cant talk about anything to do [with McClain] because Im not
    allowed to know anything about his testing, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after
    the teams 27-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens. And so thats all I can say
    there...when hes eligible we wont release him and when hes eligible hell be a
    part of this team. He had ggotten in good shape and so well just deal with what
    we find out with his status with the league.dddddddddddd.On McClains contract
    status for next year, Jones said: I cant talk about those items because it might
    imply that I knew something about his status and I dont want to lose a draft
    pick.Jones had previously said McClain would not be back with the team when his
    suspension was scheduled to end Monday.Players suspended for a year or longer do
    not have a high success rate of returning. McClain will be out until at least
    November 2017 before hes eligible to apply for reinstatement.ESPNs Todd Archer
