The Ken Giles Experience continues to be as wild and insane as advertised. The Astros are recalling left-handed pitcher Cionel Perez from Double-A Corpus Christi in a corresponding move. Back on May 27, Giles was given an 8-3 lead vs. Cleveland in the ninth inning before allowing three earned runs as part of an Indians rally.
Houston came away with the 6-5 win in a weird walk-off in the 11th inning against the Athletics. He promptly punched himself in the face on his way off the mound.

And then, not to get ahead of ourselves, but the next big question is, just how many more pints would be sold assuming England makes it into the finals against either France or Belgium, both rival European teams?
The righhander has a 4.99 ERA with 12 saves and 21 strikeouts this season.
All three runs scored and Oakland tied the game 4-4, which ultimately forced extra innings.
Hinch came to the mound to take out Giles and the television broadcast caught him appearing to curse at Hinch right after he walked by him on his way off the field. In the past offseason, Giles won arbitration for a $4.6 million salary this season.
