Gerrit Cole worked 3 2/3 innings in his third start for Houston, striking out four and allowing four hits as the Astros lost to the Marlins 7-6. Jose Altuve homered and George Springer got a hit and is batting .368 this spring. Lewis Brinson, acquired from Milwaukee in the Christian Yelich trade, continued to make a strong case for a major league roster spot by getting two hits, including his fifth double of the spring.
