Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. allowed four runs on six hits and a pair of walks over five innings of work against the Mariners on Wednesday. Most important, however, are his eight strikeouts. Although McCullers was credited with the no-decision, Houston ultimately fell to Cleveland by a score of 5-4.
McCullers is 7-2 with a 3.04 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and .195 OBA over the course of 16 starts this season. He has now struck out 41 batters over his last five starts (totaling 31.2 innings of work).
