Urquidy allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out five over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Friday. Urquidy was in line for the win when he exited the contest, but Ryan Pressly couldn't protect a one-run lead in the ninth. Instead, Urquidy settled for a quality start and his third no-decision in five outings. The right-hander amassed a 2.73 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB in 29.2 innings.
Urquidy allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out two in the win over Arizona. He did not factor in the decision. Urquidy kept the Diamondbacks quiet before allowing a run in the fourth inning and then a solo shot to Nick Ahmed in the fifth. He left the contest facing a 2-0 deficit but, thanks mostly to George Springer's two homers, he avoided the loss. The 25-year-old will carry a 2.78 ERA into his final start of the season in Friday's road contest against the Rangers.
Urquidy (1-1) allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out seven across seven innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Rangers. Urquidy's lone run allowed came in the fifth inning, when he allowed three singles in a span of four batters. Otherwise, he was in control as he needed only 90 pitches to record his 21 outs. Urquidy has looked good since making his season debut Sept. 5, as he's now allowed only three earned runs across his last two starts -- spanning 13 frames. This marks the first time this season he's whiffed more than two hitters in an outing.
Urquidy (0-1) allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out one over six innings, taking the loss against Oakland on Thursday. The offense mustered just two hits, and the Astros fell to 1-8 on their road trip, but Urquidy offered a reason for optimism. The right-hander retired the first 10 batters faced and didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning. He was eventually nicked when Matt Olson hit a two-run home run following a two-out walk. Urquidy threw 88 pitches and is getting stronger leading up to his start next Thursday at home against Texas.
Urquidy didn't factor into the decision in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels. He gave up two runs on four hits and three walks while fanning two across 3.2 innings. Urquidy had been sidelined since the beginning of the season but made his season debut in Saturday's nightcap. He sailed through the first three innings before getting touched in the fourth and departing after 63 pitches. It wasn't an outing that the Astros' prospect will remember fondly, though, but the fact that he is healthy is a positive sign for Houston ahead of the final weeks of the regular season. Urquidy will look to get deeper Thursday on the road in Oakland.
