Tough day for Wade Miley

Altuve ties the game

The Astros chipped away at the White Sox and were able to tie the game in the eighth inning after a two-run homer from Jose Altuve which tied the game at 9-9.

James McCann's grand slam off Ryan Pressly puts the game out of reach

The White Sox quickly took the lead back after McCann's grand slam in the bottom of the eighth giving Chicago a 13-9 lead.

Up Next: The Astros head to Oakland to begin a four game series against the A's on Thursday at 9:07 PM Central. Aaron Sanchez (5-14, 5.60 ERA) will be on the mound to try to build on his recent success for Houston while the A's will counter with former Astro Mike Fiers (11-3, 3.30 ERA).

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
