Gossett will fill in for injured right-hander Jharel Cotton and make his fourth major-league start – and first since recording his initial career victory on Saturday, when he allowed two unearned runs and five hits in six innings against the White Sox in Chicago. The outing also was the first in which the 24-year-old native of South Carolina did not surrender a home run. Gossett hopes to avenge a hard-luck loss to Houston on June 19 in which he gave up two runs and struck out six over 6 2/3 frames.
David Paulino gets the ball for his sixth start of the season for the Astros in this contest. He comes in with a 2-0 record, a 5.04 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, seven walks and 26 strikeouts over 25 innings of work. Paulino picked up the win his last time out, which came against the A’s on the road Thursday. He threw 5.1 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits with two walks and six strikeouts in an eventual 12-9 Houston victory. Paulino is 2-0 with a 5.28 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, five walks and 14 strikeouts over 15.1 innings in his last three starts. That last start against the A’s marked the first time he faced them in his career. Paulino is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 10 innings in his two career starts at Minute Maid Park.
