Reds / Riley O’Brien, RHP

W, 7-1, 90-68 (.570), W3 | WP: Reynaldo López (4-3, 2.98) | Game 158

In his major league debut, Reds starter Riley O’Brien records his first ER (first HR given up), first BB, and first K—all in the first inning! He goes HR, BB, K, BB, in the 2nd, before manager David Bell sends him to the dugout. DEFENSE: Reynaldo López puts up a quality start, giving up just 1 R/ER on 2 H (0 BB, 4 SO) in 6.0 IP. José Ruiz goes 1B, GO, 1B, in the 7th, but gets out of the inning with a 6-4-3 DP. Aaron Bummer goes HBP, E5, FC, 4-6-3 DP, in the 8th. Matt Foster retires 3 in order, to end it. OFFENSE: Hard-hit home runs galore! Luis Robert solo HR (11), in the 1st. Yoán Moncada solo HR (13), in the 2nd. Gavin Sheets solo HR (10), in the 4th. Gavin Sheets 1B scores Eloy Jiménez (singled, advanced to 2B on Yoán Moncada BB, advanced to 3B on Leury García sac bunt) and César Hernández FC scores Yoán Moncada (walked, advanced to 2B on Leury García SB, advanced to 3B on Gavin Sheets 1B), in the 6th.

Lucas Giolito, RHP vs.
Tigers / Matt Manning, RHP

W, 5-4, 93-68 (.578), W6 | WP: Aaron Bummer (5-5, 3.51) | S: Liam Hendriks (38) | Game 161

With the Astros 10-4 win today over the Athletics, they will host the White Sox in Game 1 of the ALDS, on October 7. If the Sox win and the Astros lose tomorrow, both teams will have the same season record, but the Astros won the season series 5-2, which would give them home-field advantage.

DEFENSE: Lucas Giolito labors, but ends up with a respectable 1 R/ER on 2 H (1 BB, 3 SO) in 5.0 IP. Ryan Burr allows a H and issues a BB with no outs, but gets out of it with a K and a Tim Anderson unassisted DP, in the 6th. Dallas Keuchel’s new role as a reliever is off to a poor start. He goes LO, 1B, K RBI 1B, RBI 2B, BB, RBI 1B, in the 7th, before Matt Foster steps in to make the final out (LO), making it 4-0 Tigers. Aaron Bummer pitches a clean 1-2-3 8th. Liam Hendricks does his usual bang-up job, retiring 2 in a row (2 SO), for the save. OFFENSE: Tigers starter Matt Manning struck out 7 White Sox, allowing just 2 H and no R (1 BB) in 5.0 IP. But their bullpen fell to the White Sox. Down 4-1 in mid 7th, the Sox bats came to life: Yoán Moncada RBI 2B scores Yasmani Grandal (doubled). Gavin Sheets RBI 1B scores Moncada. Tim Anderson RBI 1B brings in Sheets (advanced to 2B on Leury Garcia 1B). In the 8th, Yoán Mocada seals the deal with a 2-run HR that brings home Billy Hamilton (PR for Eloy Jiménez, who walked).
