Houser allowed two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings in Sunday's win over the Pirates. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.
Houser worked through five innings of one-run ball before a solo shot by Jacob Stallings chased him from the game with two outs in the sixth frame. His ERA dropped slightly to 3.62 through 64.2 innings this season. He's allowed two or fewer runs in four straight outings and seven of his last eight. Houser is lined up to face the Rockies in Colorado next weekend.
Houser (4-5) earned the win in a victory over the Reds on Tuesday, allowing an earned run on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. He also recorded four strikeouts and uncorked a wild pitch.
Houser limited the Reds to a Shogo Akiyama second-inning RBI single through his time on the mound while recording 10 swinging strikes. The right-hander was pitching on six days' rest after having last worked June 1, when he logged five innings in long relief. Houser's strong performance Tuesday is an extension of what has been a highly effective stretch of pitching, as he's now posted a 1.17 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in the 15.1 innings covering his last three trips to the mound. He lines up to next take the ball Monday at home in a rematch against the Reds.
Houser allowed one run on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks over five innings out of the bullpen Tuesday against the Tigers.
The right-hander previously lined up to start Thursday against the Diamondbacks, but he was called upon in long relief Tuesday with starter Eric Lauer lasting only two frames. The Brewers have scheduled off days Wednesday and Monday, allowing them to tweak the starting rotation ahead of the four-game set versus Arizona. Brett Anderson is now set to start Thursday, while Houser should make another start sometime next week.
Houser allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four across five shutout innings Thursday against the Padres. He did not factor into the decision.
Houser held the Padres in check to deliver his second scoreless outing of the season. He's now allowed two or fewer earned runs in six of his 10 starts, but he has also failed to work at least five innings on four occasions. The end result is an uninspiring 4.07 ERA with a 42:21 K:BB across 48.2 frames on the season.
Houser (3-5) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Reds after giving up six runs on five hits and four walks while fanning four across four innings.
Houser needed 91 pitches (49 strikes) just to get through four innings and saw his day cut short, and he was tagged with the loss. The right-hander gave up a season-high six runs and has allowed two or more runs in seven straight appearances. Houser has now posted a 5.68 during May.
Houser (3-4) allowed two runs on two hits and five walks over three innings Friday, striking out three and taking a loss against Atlanta.
Three of Houser's five walks came during the third inning before Austin Riley plated a pair of runs with a single. He threw just 32 of 65 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing of the season. The 28-year-old righty now owns a 3.63 ERA and a 34:16 K:BB. Houser is projected to take the mound in Cincinnati next weekend.
Houser (3-3) picked up the win Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings in a 6-2 victory over the Marlins. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.
The right-hander not only took care of business on the mound, throwing 62 of 94 pitches for strikes in his second straight quality start, he also aided his own cause at the plate with a solo shot off Daniel Castano in the fourth inning. Houser will take a 3.44 ERA and 31:11 K:BB through 36.2 innings into his next outing.
Houser (2-3) took the loss after surrendering four runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings Monday night against the Phillies.

He retired 14 of the last 15 batters before being removed from the contest. Houser owns a 3.52 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with a 21:11 K:BB across 30.2 frames in 2021.
Houser's next start was pushed to Monday in Philadelphia, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Eric Lauer was recalled to start Thursday against the Dodgers, which pushes the rest of the Brewers starters back a day.
Houser (2-2) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday. He also went 1-for-1 at the plate with a solo home run in the second inning.
Houser allowed the leadoff batter to get on base in five of the six innings he came out for but was able to limit the damage enough to pick up the win. The Marlins got to him for a run in the first, fourth and fifth innings but he was able to punch out a season-high seven hitters and has held the opposing offense to three runs or less in all five starts this season. He'll take a 3.65 ERA into his next start.
Houser allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings in the win Wednesday against the Padres. He did not factor in the decision.
Houser was able to limit the Padres to just one run in the third and fourth innings after allowing a leadoff double in both innings. Other than that, he slid past the Padres in 4.2 innings of minimal damage. The 28-year-old has the worst ERA amongst Brewers starters despite sporting a respectable 3.32 figurethrough 19 innings. His next start will come at home Tuesday against the Marlins.
Houser (1-2) gave up three runs on five hits and a walk over 4.1 innings Friday to take the loss as the Brewers fell 6-1 to the Pirates. He struck out three.
The right-hander gave up a solo shot to Colin Moran in the second inning before allowing two leadoff singles to begin the fifth, and Houser had to watch both runners come around to score after he got the hook. He threw 41 of 73 pitches for strikes, and while his 3.14 ERA through three starts is solid, it isn't backed up by his 1.53 WHIP or 10:7 K:BB through 14.1 innings. Houser will look for a better result in his next outing Wednesday in San Diego.
Houser (1-1) earned the win Saturday at St. Louis after giving up one unearned run on six hits with three strikeouts and four walks over five innings.
The right-hander wasn't especially sharp as he threw only 49 of 81 pitches for strikes, but he was able to limit the Cardinals to one unearned run.

Houser (0-1) gave up two runs on four hits and two walks over five innings in a loss to the Twins on Sunday. He struck out four.
Houser was just decent in his season debut. The Twins played some small ball to scrape together a run in the first, and Mitch Garver added a solo shot in the fifth on Houser's watch. The 28-year-old right-hander enters 2021 with a shaky grasp on a spot in the rotation after he posted a 5.30 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 44:21 K:BB across 56 innings in 2020. Houser will need to tighten things up on the mound or else risk a demotion to the bullpen. He lines up for his next start Saturday in St. Louis.
Houser is slated to start the Brewers' third game of the season April 4 against the Twins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The back end of the Milwaukee rotation was unsettled heading into spring training, but Houser, Brett Anderson and Freddy Peralta were able to lock up the final three spots, resulting in Josh Lindblom moving to the bullpen and Eric Lauer and Jordan Zimmermann getting demoted to minor-league camp. Houser may not head into Opening Day with much job security, however, coming off a 2020 campaign in which he saw his strikeout rate plummet steeply and his ERA climb by nearly a run and a half from 2019. He didn't restore much faith over his five starts this spring, giving up 12 runs (11 earned) on 19 hits and five walks over 12 frames.
Houser (thumb) will serve as the Brewers' starting pitcher in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Rockies, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Houser previously experienced some right thumb discomfort in his third spring outing March 14, but he was able to stay on turn and pitch through the issue in Milwaukee's 9-3 win over the Diamondbacks. He covered 3.1 innings and gave up three runs on six hits and two walks in that outing, so the Brewers may be looking for him to build up for 4-to-5 innings Wednesday. Houser may need a strong showing against Colorado to bolster his case for an Opening Day rotation spot, as Freddy Peralta, Josh Lindblom and Brett Anderson may rank ahead of him in the pecking order for back-end starting roles.
Houser (thumb) is expected to be fine after leaving Sunday's spring game against the Mariners, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Houser was diagnosed with right thumb discomfort after leaving Sunday's game, but manager Craig Counsell said that the injury is more like a cramp. The right-hander could be shut down for a few days, but the issue isn't expected to impact his availability for Opening Day.
Houser exited Sunday's spring game against the Mariners due to right thumb discomfort.

Houser was not particularly sharp Tuesday, and he was removed from the game in the first inning after reaching his pitch limit. Due to the revised rules, though, he re-entered in the second inning and struck out the side after allowing a home run to the first batter in the frame. Houser has held his own up to this point of the spring, which gives him up a leg up in the competition for the fifth spot in the Brewers' starting rotation.
