Jarred Cosart fails to make it out of opening frame in abysmal outing
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

Work on control paying off for Jarred Cosart
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The only unimpressive number compiled by Astros flamethrower Jarred Cosart in 2013 was 35 walks in 60 innings, which he overcame to register a 1.95 ERA. But considering he struck out just 33, he understood entering this season that he needed to improve his control.

Mission accomplished - at least so far. Cosart has six walks and 15 strikeouts in 18 innings in 2014. He walked two and fanned eight to help his team defeat Texas in his last start.

"Last year, the walks were too high and the strikeouts were too low," he told MLB.com. "Like I told everyone from the beginning, it was something I really worked on during spring training ... and it has been paying off."

Cosart is 1-1 with a 1.056 WHIP and 4.00 ERA this year.

Royals get the best of Scott Feldman
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

George Springer gets first hit 'out of the way' in debut
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.
