RHP Aaron Brooks gave up nine runs from nine hits in only three innings on the mound. Brooks has a 6.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP after giving up back-to-back blasts to Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez in the first inning, a two-run home run to Jose Altuve in the second inning and a solo homer to Carlos Correa in the third.
