Astros record for starting pitchers

So the Astros' SPs have had a lot of no decisions - 31, to be exact. Where are the wins - and losses - coming from, and how does the team fare per starter? Let's take us a gander:









HOU SP#StartsRecord#NDsTeam Rec in GSRun Supp
Roy216-41111-104.75
Wandy2010-6414-64.56
Hampton176-746-114.03
Moehler177-6410-74.68
Ortiz123-545-73.86


You may notice that the current SPs' NDs don't add up to 31, but keep in mind Backe (1 ND) and Paulino (3 NDs) have also started games this season. But Roy's 11 no decisions are brutal. So that got me wondering about other team's aces getting NDs. Let's look:









Team/SP#StartsRecord#NDsTeam Rec in GSRun Support
CHC/Zambrano187-4412-64.38
StL/Wainwright2111-7314-75.79
MIL/Gallardo209-7411-94.00
CIN/Cueto208-7511-93.84
PIT/Duke209-929-114.75


A couple of things stand out about this. I was surprised to see Roy get that kind of run support and still have 11 no decisions. I also found it surprising that Duke and Wainwright had the same or more run support per start. What do you take from this, class?
