Jose Urquidy allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Rays in Game 3 of the ALCS.
Urquidy was solid in Tuesday's outing, but was unable to pick up the victory. Despite allowing one run over five innings, both the defense and bullpen failed him. The Astros are on the brink of elimination as they are down 3-0 to the Rays in the ALCS. Urquidy owns a (0-1) record along with a 3.95 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 10 strikeouts over 13 innings this postseason.
Jose Urquidy named as the Astros' Game 3 starter of the ALCS against the Rays.
Urquidy allowed four runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk over four 1/3 innings in his previous outing. He will look to rebound from his last start in Game 3. Urquidy owns a 5.19 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and six strikeouts over eight 2/3 innings this postseason.
Jose Urquidy took a no-decision on Wednesday when he allowed four runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk over 4 1/3 innings in the Astros loss to the A's in Game 3 of the ALDS.
All four of Urquidy's runs came via solo dingers from Tommy La Stella, Mark Canha, Matt Olson, and Marcus Semien, respectively. It was a bizarre turn of events for the right-hander, who only gave up four home runs total over 29 2/3 innings during the regular season. He now owns a 5.19 ERA, 1.15, WHIP, and a 6:3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings (two starts) this postseason.

"Zack Grienke is ailing some," said Astros manager Dusty Baker. "Urquidy’s been dealing so it was kind of an easy choice.” The 25-year-old was dominant over five appearances in 2020, posting a 2.73 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 17 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings.
