Although he is a front-runner for the AL Manager of the Year, A.J. Hinch declined to outline how he’s better as manager of the Astros than he was during his brief tenure with the Diamondbacks. “Am I better?” he answered before opening a three-game series against Arizona on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. The record, at least, shows Hinch is better. He was 89-123 for a .420 winning percenta ...>>

The highlights and stats will show that Pat Neshek lost it for the Astros on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. The righthanded reliever, after all, is the one who gave up consecutive home runs to Wellington Castillo and Jake Lamb in the 10th inning.
