Oswalt Back?

New, 3 comments

Very impressive night for Roy Oswalt tonight; by far his best outing of the year. What a dominant performance put forth by Roy-O. 7 innings of 5 hit, 1 run ball is pretty impressive, but then add in the 10 k's and 0 walks and it really makes you feel like he may be turning a corner. Roy has mentioned time after time that he pitches to contact in an attempt to get deeper into games and keep his pitch count down. Well, tonight he threw 99 pitches and made it through 7 innings and only gave up 1 run. Doesn't seem like the 10 strike outs really hurt his pitch count too much. 100 pitches over 7 innings isn't too bad and puts the Astros just where they want to be... especially when you hold the other team to just 1 run.

Unfortunately I didn't get to watch the game tonight. Work kept me away from most of the game and I caught the last few innings on the radio on my way home, so I missed getting to actually watch Roy be dominant... but hopefully I'll get to see some more of that in his next game.
