Brought into a 5-3 game in the ninth, Will Harris took a loss after giving up two hits and a walk to the three batters he faced.
Harris has been like the fourth right-hander in the Astros pen this year, but he was given the nod to close today with Ken Giles apparently banished from Yankees games. It didn't go well, though the blown save ended up going to Brad Peacock (Peacock's crime was allowing a two-run single while retiring the other three batters he faced). Harris is a fine reliever, but we wouldn't expect a bunch of save opportunities in his future. May 3 - 5:43 PM
