Diaz hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning off Jesus Luzardo, knocking in Yuli Gurriel to square the game at 4-4.

Diaz (quadriceps) is starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Diaz didn't appear in any of the Astros' last five games after tweaking his quad last Saturday, but he'll return to action a week after suffering the injury.

Diaz isn't starting Sunday's game against the Dodgers after tweaking his quad Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Diaz had an effective performance Saturday as he went 2-for-4 with a double and a run, but he apparently didn't escape unscathed.
