News
Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel pitched well enough to win Wednesday against the Royals, but the bullpen couldn't hold onto his lead in a 6-4 loss.

Keuchel allowed just two runs in six innings of work for his second quality start in a row, and he left the game holding on to a 4-2 lead. He fell behind early on a second-inning solo home run, but limited the damage to just the two runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out five barters.

Keuchel is just 1-1 despite holding a 3.50 ERA after three starts. He will go for his second win in his next start, set for Monday in Seattle.

News
Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar got the scoring started Saturday, and put together the team's loan multi-hit performance in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics.

Villar was 2 for 3 at the bottom of the order, including a solo home run in the third inning to gain an early lead. He scored twice, as well, while raising his batting average to .212.

 Villar has been un unexpected source of power for the Astros, launching three home runs in 18 games, after finished the 2013 season with just one in 58 games. He is still hitting just .212/.293/.442 with three home runs and six RBI in 52 at-bats.

News
Astros starting pitcher Jarred Cosart's night was done almost before it even started on Friday, as he recorded just one out in an 11-3 defeat to the A's.

Cosart (1-2) surrendered a two-run single to Yoenis Cespedes, a three-run home run to Alberto Callaspo and a two-run home run Josh Reddick before he was pulled for Paul Clemens in the opening frame. Cosart took the loss, only lasting one-third of an inning and allowing seven runs on three hits and four walks.

Cosart saw his ERA go from 4.00 to 7.36 after Friday's abysmal outing. He'll look to get back on track when he takes the hill Wednesday at Seattle.

Astros pitcher Scott Feldman took a step back and was on the wrong end of a decision for the first time this season in his team's 5-1 defeat to the Royals on Thursday.

Feldman (2-1) surrendered a run-scoring single to Mike Moustakas in the second, a two-run double to Alcides Escobar in the fourth and a run-scoring double to Salvador Perez in the fifth. He was charged with five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and one walks while striking out two over six innings pitched.

Feldman has allowed just five earned runs over his first 26 2/3 innings pitched through four starts. He'll look to turn things around again Tuesday in Seattle.

Astros reliever Chad Qualls went for his second save of the season Saturday, but couldn't close the deal in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics.

Qualls recorded just a single out in his save attempt, as the A's jumped all over him in the ninth. He allowed a leadoff home run and then put the next two batters on base via a walk and a hit. He recorded his first out, but then the A's finished the game with consecutive singles to bring across the winning runs.

Qualls now has a 9.00 ERA and 2.80 WHIP in six appearances, spanning five innings of work.

Astros starting pitcher Brett Oberholtzer tossed the ball well enough to win Saturday against the A's, but the bullpen cost him in a 4-3 loss.

Oberholtzer held the A's to just one run in five-plus innings of work, in the third inning. He scattered eight hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings, while striking out three batters and throwing 63 of 94 pitches for strikes.

Oberholtzer was on pace for his first win of the season, before closer Chad Qualls blew the save with a 3-1 lead. Oberholtzer remains 0-3 with a 3.04 ERA after four starts. He will go for his first win in his next start, Thursday against the A's again.

News
Astros outfielder George Springer made his much-anticipated MLB debut during Wednesday's 6-4 loss in 11 innings to the Royals. 

Springer, who hit second for Houston, connected for his first career major-league hit in his second at-bat. It was an infield single.

"We're glad he got it out of the way the first day," manager Bo Porter said, per MLB.com. "It's good to have him in the lineup. There's definitely some things that could happen when he's on the baseball field, the attention that he draws on the basepaths, it will give the hitters that are hitting behind him some pitches to hit as well, but it was good to see him get that first one out of the way."

Springer scored one batter after his first hit as Jason Castro connected for a two-run homer. Springer went 1 for 5 with one walk, two strikeouts and one caught stealing in his debut.

"I didn't necessarily hit it hard, and now I can go play from there and develop and have fun," Springer said.
