Woody Williams Carlos Zambrano
2 - 8, 5.79 6 - 5, 5.38

Interesting that Zambrano, who has pitched about as poorly as you can in the year when he should have come into his own, has the 5.00+ ERA and a winning record.

Even Wandy (who has some powers in that area) hasn't been able to pull that trick off with the recent run-challenged Astros.

Neat trick if you can pull it off, though. Here are the Astros who have done it over a full season:

  yr name                   w   l   pct   era 
2001 Dave Mlicki            7   3  .700  5.09 
2003 Jeriome Robertson     15   9  .625  5.10 
1994 Pete Harnisch          8   5  .615  5.40 
1991 Ryan Bowen             6   4  .600  5.15 
1994 Brian Williams         6   5  .545  5.74
