Preview:

Sigh. The Astro offensive woes on the road continue. Richard Justice had a stat to hammer that home today.

Collin McHugh comes the Astros rescue to keep the opposing offense in check. Collin McHugh picked up his 15th win of the season on Friday, pitching 7 2/3 scoreless inning against the Twins. He has allowed just four earned runs over his last 28 innings.
