Post-Game Quotes
ASTROS MANAGER BO PORTER: Do you think you’ve found something special in Peacock the way he’s pitched the last six weeks? “He’s been outstanding from the time we called him back up. It’s been quality start after quality start. Again, tonight you just look, his breaking ball has come a long way. He’s comfortable throwing it early in the count. He’s comfortable throwing it to get himself back in the count. Tonight was just another example of him just using all four of his pitches and doing a tremendous job.” It’s been a nice streak for the starting pitching the last few days… “Our starting pitching has been outstanding. When you pitch well and you swing the bats, give those guys a little bit of cushion, it allows them to attack the zone that much more, and I feel like they’ve done a tremendous job of that all series.” Situational hitting has improved recently and that was a big thing this series too… “Yes, it was a big thing. You look at the quality of the at-bats in those situations. Guys are not chasing. They’re getting pitches that they can do something with, they’re not fouling them off and they’re putting good swings on them.”
