Bauer (4-4) gave up three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out a season-high nine in Friday's 5-3 win over the Astros.

He's now an incredible 7-0 in seven career starts against Houston. Bauer continues to have trouble keeping the ball in the park, giving up two more homers to leave him with a 2.0 HR/9 and an ugly 6.65 ERA through 44.2 innings, but his 10.7 K/9 is a career high and his 4.81 FIP and 3.40 xFIP suggest he'll be able to shave that ERA down over the summer. The righty's next start comes Wednesday at home against the Reds.
