PHOENIX -- A lot of things are going right for the Houston Astros these days. Sean Couturier Jersey
. Take Monday nights 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks, for instance. Even when a left-handed reliever went to the outfield for one batter then came back to pitch, everything worked out just fine. With his bullpen worn down, Astros manager Bo Porter took Tony Sipp off the mound and sent him to right field while right-hander Jerome Williams faced Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt walked, then Sipp went back to pitching, striking out left-handed hitting Miguel Montero. Porter had told Sipp to be ready for the switch. "I didnt think it actually was going to happen," Sipp said. "He gave me a warning but Im like All right, OK Bo." Sipp hadnt played in the outfield since his days at Clemson. "I think I had more focus in right field than I did on the mound," he said. Sipp left for good and Kyle Farnsworth fanned Martin Prado to end the inning. " It was a good play unless Goldy hit one to him," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "I have seen it done before. I think I saw Lou Piniella do it in the playoffs once before. It is certainly in the rules. Hes going to manage his team the way he wants to manage it. It worked out for him." Jose Altuve had three hits, including an RBI double, and Jarred Cosart pitched six solid innings for the Astros. Cosart (5-5) allowed three runs and five hits with two walks. The 23-year-old right-hander struck out eight, matching his career high set in his previous start against the Los Angeles Angels. He retired the first 10 batters, five by strikeout. The Astros scored their four runs in the first two innings off Josh Collmenter (4-3), who settled down to blank Houston over his final five innings. Goldschmidt doubled in a run for the Diamondbacks, who had won five of six going into the game. Chad Qualls pitched a scoreless ninth for his eighth save in nine opportunities and seventh straight since May 11. The Astros have won four of five and 12 of their last 16. "Weve all won at some level. Thats kind of what was the motto in spring training," Cosart said. "Whether its college, high school, Little League, whatever, we all know what its like to win, so why not get it going up here? And everyones just feeding off each other." Altuve singled and scored in the first, doubled in a run in the second and singled in the fourth. Dexter Fowler had three hits, including a double, and scored twice. Collmenter went seven innings, giving up four runs, three earned, and seven hits. Right fielder Gerardo Parra threw out Altuve trying to score from second on Jon Singletons single in the ninth. Porter challenged, arguing that Montero, the catcher, missed the tag, but the call was upheld after a 38-second video review. Fowler and Altuve opened the game with singles, then after an out, Jason Castro was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Matt Dominguezs sacrifice fly brought one run home. Another scored on second baseman Aaron Hills fielding error. In the second, Fowler singled and scored from first on Altuves double over the head of Inciarte in centre field. Castro doubled Altuve home and Houston led 4-0. Parra was the first Arizona player to reach base, drawing a walk with one out in the fourth. Goldschmidt followed with Arizonas first hit, a double down the left field line that scored Parra from first. Montero singled to put runners at first and third, but Prado grounded into a double play to end the inning. Arizona got two more runs in the sixth. Didi Gregorius singled, then scored from third when Parra singled and Fowler muffed the ball in centre field. Goldschmidt walked, then Monteros RBI single made it 4-3. Inciarte saved a run with a diving catch of Jonathan Villars fly ball to end the eighth. NOTES: Altuve stole his 24th base. ... Arizonas David Peralta was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. He had a base hit in all seven of his previous major league games. ... On Tuesday, the Astros send RHP Brad Peacock (2-4, 4.82 ERA) to the mound against RHP Bronson Arroyo (5-4, 4.50). ... Houston OF George Springer was a late scratch with a sore right knee. Andrew MacDonald Jersey

. 8 Sergio Parisse for its penultimate Six Nations match against Ireland at Lansdowne Road.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The Reds put left-hander Tony Cingrani on the 15-day disabled list because of soreness in his pitching shoulder, giving them two starters sidelined by injury. They called up right-handed reliever Curtis Partch on Thursday for the start of a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Manager Bryan Price says the Reds wont need to add another starter because they have three days off in the next two weeks. The Reds opened the season with eight players on the disabled list, the most in the majors. Right-handed starter Mat Latos had surgery to repair torn knee cartilage on Feb. 14 and later developed soreness in his pitching forearm. Theres no expectation for when Latos will be back. Price said Cingrani should be ready to return in two weeks. The move on Thursday was more of a precaution. "Hes felt like it hasnt impaired his pitching, but hes aware he hasnt felt 100 per cent like his first game against the Cardinals," Price said. "I think he can still pitch with itt.

. All things considered, we dont want 60 per cent to 70 per cent of Tony Cingrani if we can get closer to 100 per cent. And were going to take advantage of this spot in the schedule to get him right." Cingrani is 2-2 with a 3.34 ERA in six starts. He gave up three runs in four innings of a 9-4 loss to the Cubs on Wednesday night, with his velocity dropping in the final inning. Cingrani would have liked to stay in the game longer on Wednesday and remain in the rotation, pitching through the problem. "I dont know why they do a lot of things," Cingrani said. "I dont agree with it, but thats what they want to do because they dont want me to injure myself, so I understand. I think I could throw just fine, but theyre exercising caution." Partch opened the season with the Reds and didnt allow a run in 4 1-3 innings. He retired 13 of the 17 batters he faced. He was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on April 19 when left-handed reliever Sean Marshall was activated.
