I never would have guessed that looking at the stats between Roy Oswalt and Randy Johnson, that the Big Unit would be the one with the more impressive stats... that just goes to show how average Roy Oswalt's season has been overall so far.

Last time out, Roy went 7 innings against the Giants giving up 3 runs and earning a win(his 4th straight decision with a win). Roy has yet to face Arizona this season.

Johnson has been outstanding in August... in his 3 starts during August, he has a 2-1 record with a 1.86 ERA. He's pitched 6 or more innngs in every game and has yet to give up more than 2 earned runs in a start. His strike out to walk ratio this August is 20 to 1.

The Astros really need a win today to put an end to this 2 game losing streak. The Brewers were able to beat the Dodgers last night and move another game ahead of the Astros and now sit 8.5 games up.
