Alarming pitching statistics

I'm not going into the standard pitching statistics you just read from the offense. But I did just see a couple of things worth pointing out to this point in the season...

-The Astros have 19 wins among starters. That's tied for 27th in the Majors.
-Their 25 No Decisions are tied for 5th-most.
-The Astros have 3 "Tough Losses." TLs are losses in which the SP threw a quality start.
-Houston has 8 Wins Lost, tied for 2nd most in the Majors, in which the SP left in position for a win, and (obviously) lost it.
-They also have 12 Losses Saved, which is pretty self-explanatory, tied for 5th in the Majors.
-The Astros' SPs have thrown quality starts in 41% of the games started - tied for 26th in the majors. The Cubs lead the league with a quality start rate of 65%.
-The Astros' average SP outing is 5.5 innings/start. That's 29th in the majors - Baltimore is in last with 5.4 IP/start.
-The Astros have had 13 starts of fewer than 80 pitches, tied with Toronto for most in the Majors.
-Roy's 126-pitch CG was tied for 5th-highest outing, as far as pitch-count, this season.
