For just the second time this season, the Astros didn't have either second baseman Jose Altuve or shortstop Jed Lowrie in the starting lineup. Lowrie was given a day off, but Altuve was out of the lineup for the fifth consecutive day with a strained hamstring. Astros manager Brad Mills said Altuve is available to pinch-hit, but he's still a couple of days away from returning to the starting lineup.
