Bullpen has Astros in position to take series from Pirates

The Houston Astros' bullpen, once seemingly infallible with right-handers Will Harris, Ryan Pressly and Roberto Osuna thriving in high-leverage situations, recently showed signs of vulnerability.

On Tuesday, however, the Astros took a step toward improving their bullpen depth with the return of right-hander Collin McHugh, who worked a scoreless ninth inning in Houston's 5-1 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates.

The teams will meet again Wednesday in the middle contest of a three-game set at Minute Maid Park.
