Rodon (8-3) held the Astros to one hit and struck out 10 over seven innings Sunday to record his second straight win.
Rodon mastered the Astros' lineup, giving up only a third-inning single to Abraham Toro. Two relievers combined for two perfect innings to preserve the win, Chicago's second straight after losing the first five meetings with Houston, a team they may very well need to face come October. It was the 12th time over 16 starts that Rodon has allowed one earned run or fewer. The left-hander brings a tidy 2.14 ERA into his next start, which is likely to come Saturday on the road against Milwaukee.
