Hinch uncertain who will close for Astros in Game 2

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch is unsure who will be the team's closer in case of a late lead in Game 2 of the ALCS.

What It Means:

After running up 37 pitches in Game 1, usual closer Ken Giles might not be able to go in Saturday's game, leaving Hinch with a tough decision to make. The situation may be fluid, but he did mention the names of Chris Devenski, Will Harris, Joe Musgrove and Brad Peacock when speaking on the topic. He added that it's an "all-hands-on-deck mentality" for Houston.

Of those 4 candidates, Devenski seems to be the most obvious choice. In 62 appearances, he is 6-5 with 4 saves and a 2.68 ERA this season.
