Astros starter Framber Valdez allowed just two runs over seven innings of work en route to earning his fifth win of the season on Thursday. His final line included four hits, five walks, and six strikeouts. Houston ultimately defeated Cleveland by a score of 7-2.
The walks were a concern for Valdez on Thursday, though he still had a good outing. He's now 5-1 with a 2.18 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and .201 OBA this year. He has yet to all more than three runs in any of his seven outings so far this season.
