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.
