Since the start of May starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel had lowered his ERA from 3.96 to 2.50 during that ride he has also has went five and two in the win and loss column. Wednesday was no different for Keuchel, he finished the night tossing 8 innings of 1 run ball.
Keuchel cursed through the lineup the first time through with ease, allowing no hits and only one walk to the first ten batters. Keuchel did run in to trouble in the top of the fourth allowing a home run and a single before getting a double play and a ground ball to escape further harm. When asked about the home run allowed Keuchel said “I thought it was a decent pitch, but he has some pull pop and he hit it out of the yard”.
Astros ended up wining the game 5-1 against the Diamondbacks, they have one more game in the two game series.
Dallas Keuchel lowered his ERA to 2.38
