Astros' Lance McCullers: Makes second relief appearance

McCullers struck out one over two-thirds of an inning in a 5-2 win over Baltimore in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader.

This was McCullers' second appearance since coming off the disabled list, and it was stressful: The bases were loaded with one out in the seventh inning. After a wild pitch plated a run, McCullers settled in to get a strikeout and groundout. He's not assured of a postseason roster spot, as manager A.J. Hinch needs to determine if the right-hander's arsenal is where it needs to be after he made just two appearances since July.
