Astros send reliever Ken Giles down to Triple-A Fresno

Ken Giles, who had 34 saves for the world champion Houston Astros last season, was sent down to Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday. The Astros are recalling left-handed pitcher Cionel Perez from Double-A Corpus Christi in a corresponding move.

Before that insane 11th-inning comeback, closer Ken Giles allowed three runs without recording an out in the ninth inning.

Hinch came to the mound to take out Giles and the television broadcast caught him appearing to curse at Hinch right after he walked by him on his way off the field.

"I did hear about it", he said, via the Houston Chronicle. I don't know, man. I didn't hear anything.

The right-hander allowed three runs without recording an out in Houston's 6-5, extra-inning victory against Oakland on Tuesday. "It if turns out it was at me, we'll talk about it". But Giles has memorably sunk the "Stros in high-leverage spots this season". The first incident of note came May 2 when the reliever allowed a three-run, go-ahead homer to Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez and was saddled with a loss. He's given up 36 hits and 17 earned runs.
