The Astros, even without Jose Altuve and George Springer, posed a serious challenge to even the most electric pitcher in the bullpen.
East Texan and Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin had a rough start to the season, but will take the mound on Tuesday night coming off his best outing and first win of 2017.

Altuve was checked for a concussion but does not have one, manager A.J. Hinch said. "I mean, he has a very good breaking ball, like you said".
"He's gotten checked out by the doctors, he didn't have a concussion, he was never out", Hinch said. The first came in 2015 when he started 6-0 en route to winning the Cy Young Award. Carlos Santana matched Brantley's mark at the plate with a double of his own and 2 RBI, while Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Ramirez each put a run on the board for the Indians.
Even if the Indians were off to a awful start, though, it wouldn't matter much to me because of the presence of one player: left fielder Michael Brantley.
NOTES: Houston OF Teoscar Hernandez was placed on the disabled list with a left knee contusion.
The Indians got another inconsistent outing from right-hander Trevor Bauer, who allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings. He has hit safely in six of the seven home games the Indians have played this year, and he has hit safely in 43 of his past 48 home games going back to last year. Michael Brantley led the charge by going 2 for 4 with a double and 3 RBI. Andrew Miller vs. Carlos Correa in a three-run game with the bases loaded.
RAYS 2, ORIOLES 0 Substitute starter Austin Pruitt combined with four other Tampa Bay relievers on a two-hitter, and they capitalized on Wade Miley's wildness in a victory over host Baltimore.
BREWERS 9, REDS 1 Eric Thames hit his major league-leading 11th home run - his sixth against Cincinnati this season - and host Milwaukee cruised to a victory over the Reds.
Kipnis was impressed with Keuchel's performance. "The at-bat in the last inning, the (pitch) was disappearing right underneath my bat, so tip your cap to him". He ran into a wall chasing a fly ball Sunday. Mike Fiers gets the start in the series finale and is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season.
McCullers gave up three runs in the first inning and five total over five innings.
