Astros turn to Zack Greinke in series finale vs. D-backs

Houston Astros right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. got off to the type of start that seemed to trend toward the bullpen having an easy game Saturday against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks.

But after needing just nine pitches to complete the top of the first inning and 10 to strike out the side in the third, McCullers labored through a three-run fourth and departed with 111 pitches on his ledger over six innings. And with the Astros (87-61) contesting their second consecutive extra-inning affair, Houston needed five relievers to complete its 6-4 loss to Arizona (48-100).

Yimi Garcia allowed three runs in the 10th to take the loss in what was the seventh consecutive game Houston has used at least three relievers. The Astros haven't received at least seven innings from a starting pitcher since Framber Valdez did so against Texas on Aug. 28.
