Jose Urquidy lost his second straight decision after allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six in an 8-5 loss to the Athletics. The loss dropped him to 13-7 on the season.
This performance was a disappointment for Houston and fantasy managers alike considering the opponent. After going almost four straight months of quietly being one of the better mid-rotation fantasy starters, all of a sudden the wheels are falling off a bit. He allowed two home runs on Saturday after getting rocked by the Angels his last time out. He will face the Orioles on the road in his next start, which is no longer a must start.
