Hinch pulled Giles in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Oakland Athletics at Minute Maid Park after the righty closer gave up two hits without recording an out. The television broadcast appeared to show Giles cursing at manager AJ Hinch as he was lifted. He was given the game with a 4-0 Astros lead.

The Astros recalled left-hander Cionel Perez from Double A Corpus Christi Wednesday. "He was pretty mad in the dugout". That stuff happens in the heat of battle. "It if turns out it was at me, we'll talk about it".

Giles has had a tumultuous season so far with several poignant negative moments. When asked about it after the game, Hinch said he'd have to ask Giles if it was directed at him. He punched himself in the face after another bad outing.

The righhander has a 4.99 ERA with 12 saves and 21 strikeouts this season.

With the Phillies, Giles struck out 151 batters in 115.2 innings, allowed just 20 earned runs over that time and finished fourth in rookie of the year voting his first season. He has allowed 17 runs all season in 34 appearances.
