The Astros have now won 2 series in a row and welcome the Boston Red Sox to Houston for a 3 game series. The Astros are sending their recent call up(and replacement for Chacon) Runelvys Hernandez to the hill against Dice K.
Daisuke has been pretty good overall this season (I say pretty good... what I mean is VERY good) with only losing 1 game this season. That one loss came in his first start since returning from the DL in which he only went 1 inning and gave up 7 earned runs. Before then, his era was 2.53.
