• Astros relief pitcher Wilton Lopez, who's been on the disabled list since June 11 with a sprained right elbow, will fly to New Orleans following Wednesday's game to begin a rehab stint with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

• Matt Sinatro, the Astros' Major League catching and advance scouting coordinator, served as first-base coach on Tuesday and will do so again Wednesday. First-base coach Bobby Meacham returned home for personal reasons. The Astros had to get permission from the umpires to put a uniform on Sinatro, who typically stays in the clubhouse during games.
