Astros: LHP Tony Sipp (right oblique soreness) played catch again, manager A.J. Hinch said.
Rangers: LHP Martin Perez (1-1, 11.88 ERA) will make his third start of the season Monday against the Rays. Perez is coming off the shortest start by any Texas starter, lasting just three innings and giving up eight runs.
Astros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (0-2, 4.20) starts a four-game series Monday at Seattle. Keuchel has never opened 0-3. In his last start, he lasted just four innings.
Have it in the works now, Jackson said Wednesday, via the Buffalo News. That’s the plan, to come back and show Buffalo that my career in Buffalo was the most important thing to me in my football career and I would love to retire as a Buffalo Bill.
We’re in the works of talking and trying to work something out that will benefit both myself and Buffalo in making it happen.
Jackson, an undrafted free agent out of Division III Coe College, became a fan favorite during his eight seasons in Buffalo. He rushed for 5,646 yards with the Bills.
Houston kept All-Star big man Towns in check, limiting him to just eight points after he’d averaged 21.3 in leading the Wolves to their first playoff appearance since 2004. Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points to lead Minnesota.

Said Towns: I’ve got to be better all-around.
