The Astros started this season by losing their first two series on the road, first three out of four in Tampa Bay and then two out of three in Arlington.
But since, Houston hasn’t lost one single time. It swept the A’s and Yankees at Minute Maid Park and took three in a row from Seattle at Safeco Field this weekend.
Gerrit Cole pitched well again and finally got his first win. Roberto Osuna closed it out for the ‘Stros, who did not get a home run from Jose Altuve after long balls in five straight games.
Collin McHugh had put up decent strikeout numbers for four full seasons as a big leaguer before finding some power stuff out of the bullpen for Houston last season, when he struck out nearly a dozen per nine.
This season, he’s maintained that rate as a starting pitcher. He’s 2–1 in his three starts, having given up just ten hits in 17 innings pitched.
McHugh stymied Oakland for six innings a week-and-a-half ago but he only struck out four and walked three. The A’s didn’t hit him (just three hits in six innings) but at least they put the bat on the ball.
The Athletics had a 7–2 lead in the last third of the game against the Rangers on Sunday but the bullpen blew it and Oakland’s four-game winning streak came to a screeching halt.
Stephen Piscotty and Matt Chapman went deep for Oakland, who also got six good innings from Brett Anderson, who had left his prior start with cramps. At least he’s ok.
Joakim Soria gave up four runs in the eighth to take the loss.
