Astros set to square off against Sale, Red Sox

When Astros manager A.J. Hinch briskly walked to the mound to remove rookie right-hander Corbin Martin in the fourth inning Thursday at Minute Maid Park, what followed was an extended conversation that featured Hinch doing the talking and Martin all the listening.

Flanked by veterans in the Houston rotation, Martin has plenty to learn in negotiating the challenge of starting every fifth day in the majors. He won't pitch this weekend when the Astros host the Boston Red Sox for a three-game series at Minute Maid Park, but with right-hander Collin McHugh on the 10-day injured list, Martin is sure to get another opportunity to apply what he has experienced so far.

"He was behind a lot, and that's what I told him when I took him out of the game," Hinch said. "Like a lot of young pitchers, he was carrying one bad pitch into the next bad pitch. It's a learning experience for him. He'll be better for it. I know he's frustrated. As he started falling behind, he started going into the middle of the strike zone, they started getting some hits, and it just spiraled from there."
