Houston, Tx (SPORTSRADIO 610) - The Houston Astros have optioned RHP Ken Giles to Triple-A Fresno after a bad appearance in last night's 6-5 win against the Oakland A's.

Giles allowed three consecutive singles with nobody out in the ninth, allowing the A's to pull ahead 4-1.

The television broadcast appeared to show Giles mouthing, "Ahhh, f--- you, man." as he left the game. 

In the post-game interview, Astros' manager AJ Hinch was asked about the outburst and said, "That stuff happens in the heat of battle. I'll have to look at it. He can let me know if it was directed at me; I didn't hear anything. And you can certainly understand that I'll address it if it turns out it was at me."
