Worth noting

Astros infielder Jesus Guzman, who was scratched from the lineup Sunday with back discomfort, returned to the lineup Tuesday and started at first base. Guzman had only three at-bats since making his previous start June 30.

"My back is much better today, and from yesterday to today I feel way better than last week," he said.

Astros right-hander Collin McHugh pitched five innings and allowed and three hits, one walk and one run and struck out five batters in rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. He's been on the disabled list since July 7 with a right middle fingernail avulsion, which is when the nail pulls away from the skin. If he came through healthy, he would be slotted back into the rotation, likely this weekend.
