Worth noting

• Astros outfielder J.D. Martinez, who's been on the disabled list since July 27 with a left wrist sprain, is taking live batting practice while working out in Kissimmee, Fla., and should be back before the end of the regular season, Porter said.

• Hall of Fame broadcaster Milo Hamilton, who had called Astros home games through the end of last season, celebrated his 86th birthday on Monday. He was at the ballpark and was recognized during Sunday's game.
