Peacock's next start will come Monday against the White Sox rather than Sunday against the Red Sox as originally expected, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Peacock loses a two-start week this week but picks one up next week. He'll get to face a much easier opponent, though he's expected to face the Red Sox anyway in his following start next Saturday.
Peacock (4-2) got the win against the Tigers on Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits over five innings, striking out three, and walking four as the Astros picked up an 8-1 victory. He didn't have his best control, as Peacock issued four free passes and tossed 88 pitches, but he did well to limit the damage and bag his fourth win of the season. The right-hander has rebounded nicely since a seven-run blowup against the Twins on May 2, as he's given up just the one run over 12 innings in his two starts since, lowering his ERA to 4.01 and his WHIP to 1.13 over 42.2 innings.
Peacock (3-2) gave up three hits with one walk while striking out 12 through seven scoreless innings, earning a win over the Royals on Wednesday. Peacock generated 27 called strikes in a dominant performance en route to his third win. This was a nice way to bounce back after he allowed seven runs in his last start. The right-hander has a 3-2 record with a 4.30 ERA and 38:10 K:BB through six starts this season. Peacock will make his next start Monday in Detroit.
Peacock (2-2) allowed seven earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two across 3.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Twins. Peacock had little issue through the first three innings but had trouble with the heart of the Twins' order his second time through the lineup. After allowing seven of the first nine batters he faced to reach base in the fourth inning, Peacock was pulled with a six-run deficit. He's pitched predominantly as a starter this season but has now allowed five or more earned runs in two of his five starts this season. He'll look to get back on track in his next effort, likely to come Wednesday against the Royals.
Peacock allowed one run on four hits and one walk in six innings during Saturday's 4-3 win over the Indians. He struck out seven but did not factor in the decision. Peacock exited the game in line for his third win of the year, but the Indians were able to tie the game in the seventh inning. The 31-year-old has a 3.67 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB across 27 innings and lines up to next pitch Thursday at Minnesota.
