Verlander aims to keep Astros on track vs. White Sox

Astros right-hander Brad Peacock provided Houston a strong pitching performance Monday that, in a vacuum, was more than sufficient for the opener of an extended four-game series.

From a macro perspective, Peacock set the Astros on the path to winning the series by twirling five shutout innings in a 3-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

With ace right-handers Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole scheduled to start the next two games at Minute Maid Park, Houston earned a distinct advantage by claiming the first contest, particularly with the White Sox utilizing the "opener" strategy on Monday and working through five members of their bullpen.
