Giolito (6-1) dominated with a four-hit, complete-game shutout against the Astros on Thursday, walking one batter while punching out nine.

Not only was it Giolito's first complete-game shutout, but it was also the first time in his career to earn four consecutive wins. The only four hits Giolito allowed were singles as the right-hander fanned a season-high nine batters and threw 87 of 107 pitches for strikes. It was quite the feat against a top-ranked Houston offense. The right-hander will carry a 2.77 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 59:19 K:BB into a favorable showdown with Kansas City on Tuesday.
