ALCS GAME 6: Brad Peacock will open for Astros in a bullpen game: “We decided to go with Peacock just because their lineup is really good at the top, and Brad’s really good at matching up against those guys. And he’s got one of the calmest heartbeats in our club. He’s kind of been there, done that. He’s closed games in the World Series. He’s pitched in a variety of roles for us. The moment is not going to be too big. He can execute pitches. I thought the way he threw the ball last night in the eight pitches was encouraging. And who better to kick off the chaos of a bullpen day than a calm Brad Peacock.” –AJ Hinch
