It was another tough week for our Astros. They managed two wins against four losses on the road against sub-par teams. It was hard to find any standouts this time around but here it goes. This week’s runner-up is Wandy Rodriguez. Wandy earned his eleventh win of the season Saturday against the Nats. In six innings Wandy struck out seven and didn’t walk anyone.
This week’s Star Performer Award goes to Brett Myers. It had been a long time since his last win but Myers has been pitching better lately. Making his first start since the birth of his fourth child, Myers got back in the win column Tuesday against Pittsburgh. Myers went 7 & 2/3 innings, allowing only one run on four hits. It looked like he may be able to go the distance but Brad Mills took the big righty out of the game after he made a throwing error on a comebacker that should have ended the inning. Myers threw 65 of his 92 pitches for strikes and fanned six en route to his fourth victory of the season.
