From the Office of the County Clerk - G101: Astros @ Blue Jays

Welp. The Astros were held to two hits and no runs as the Blue Jays beat the Astros, 4-0.

*Mark Buehrle's 90 Game Score is the highest since he posted a 93 in his perfect game against the Rays back on July 23, 2009, which just so happened to be his last complete game shutout.

*Erik Bedard threw 5IP, 3H/1ER, 6K:1BB but was again inefficient as he needed 95 pitches to get those 15 outs.
*Bedard's last two outings: 11.1IP, 3H/2ER, 16K:6BB, two losses.
*Bedard threw first-pitch strikes to just six of 17 batters faced.
*Oh and then Lucas Harrell came in. In 3IP he allowed 4H/3ER, 2K:2BB to raise his ERA to 5.17.
*In Harrell's last ten appearances, he has thrown 44.1IP, allowing 47H/27ER, 28K:25BB.
*The Astros haven't won a game in which Harrell appeared since June 20.

*Justin Maxwell and J.D. Martinez had your only hits.
*This is the 4th time the Astros have been held to two hits or less, and the tenth time they've been shutout this season.

*The Astros are 1-6 since the All-Star Break, and have been out-scored 43-25. Jason Castro is 5x29 with 13 strikeouts in those seven games.

Seems like whenever we get dominated and only have like one or two hits that J.D. is the one with at least one of the hits.

Buehrle did not even reach a game score of 80 since that perfect game until yesterday
