CHICAGO (AP) Houston Astros right-hander Gerrit Cole didn't make a scheduled start in the second game of doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night because of right hamstring discomfort.

Cole was listed on the starting lineup, but righty Chris Devenski took the mound in the bottom of the first. Devenski made his first start of the season and seventh of his career.

Cole is 14-5 with a 2.87 ERA and will have to wait to try to extend his career-best winning streak to 11 games. The last team to beat him was the White Sox on May 22.

Devenski is 2-0 with a 4.33 ERA in 46 games.
