Astros starter Jose Urquidy went the distance and preserved the bullpen on Thursday as he went seven innings, allowing just two runs, four hits, and a walk. He also struck out five batters in the effort. Houston defeated the White Sox, 10-2, and Urquidy earned his fifth win of 2021.
Urquidy is now 5-3 with a 3.65 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and .220 OBA over 12 starts. He's been especially strong at home; his splits in Houston include a 4-1 record, 2.78 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and .192 OBA.
