Astros reliever Ken Giles has been demoted to Triple-A after an outburst during the ninth inning of an Astros win Tuesday.

The right-hander allowed three runs without recording an out in Houston's 6-5, extra-inning victory against Oakland on Tuesday. As manager AJ Hinch came to the mound to remove him, Giles appeared to curse Hinch out, saying, "F- you man".

The role was previously reported to belong to Ron Cephas Jones , but his casting never came together due to a scheduling conflict. DC's Shazam! movie has found its 3,000-year-old Wizard.

Houston came away with the 6-5 win in a weird walk-off in the 11th inning against the Athletics. "He was pretty mad in the dugout". I'll have to look at it. "It if turns out it was at me, we'll talk about it". It has been a season of woe so far for Giles, whom the Astros have entrusted the closer role. He punched himself in the face after another bad outing. He is 0-2 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.27 WHIP, striking out 31 batters in 30.2 innings. Giles was replaced by Hector Rondon, and the A's tied the game. Nearly more memorable than that was Giles punching himself in the face after giving up four runs to the Yankees in the ninth inning on May 2. He's had just one save in nine appearances since June 17.
