Ken Giles is being sent down to the Minors.
Giles was not happy after manager A.J. Hinch took him out of the game after he allowed three hits to three straight batters to start the inning.
Houston came away with the 6-5 win in a freaky walk-off in the 11th inning against the Athletics. The Astros are recalling left-handed pitcher Cionel Perez from Double-A Corpus Christi in a corresponding move.
Giles, the Houston Astros reliever, was brought into Tuesday's game against the Oakland A's in the ninth inning with a comfortable 4-0 lead. It has been a season of woe so far for Giles, whom the Astros have entrusted the closer role. He punched himself in the face after another bad outing.

Prosecutors: Manafort says he's treated like 'VIP' in jail
In a D.C. court filing in which he described his jailing, Manafort had said he is kept in solitary confinement 23 hours a day. Special counsel Robert Mueller's office is apparently fed up with Paul Manafort's efforts to delay his upcoming trial.
Before that insane 11th-inning comeback, closer Ken Giles allowed three runs without recording an out in the ninth inning.
Giles has allowed 17 runs in 30.2 innings pitched this season.
Giles' troubles date back to the playoffs last season. The game was ultimately tied and the Astros lost in extra innings. In the past offseason, Giles won arbitration for a $4.6 million salary this season.
