CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Houston Astros have recalled right-hander Jordan Lyles from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start against the Cincinnati Reds.
Infielder Brian Bixler was optioned to Oklahoma City on Sunday to make room for Lyles.
Lyles was 4-0 with a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings over four starts with the Redhawks.
Lyles' first major league win came against Cincinnati on Aug. 3, when he pitched seven effective innings in a 5-4 victory at Minute Maid Park.
Bixler had just been recalled from the Redhawks on Friday. He is batting .143 in six games with Houston this season.
