Notes on last night's loss

Just a few things about last night's extra-inning loss to Arlington:

*It was the first 1-0 loss since the Astros were defeated by Pittsburgh in May 2013, but the first extra-inning 1-0 loss since August 2012, 2011 when the Dodgers won 1-0 in 10 innings.
*The Astros' two hits were the fewest in an extra-inning game since being held to three hits in 12 innings on May 17, 2007 in a loss to the Giants.
*Scott Feldman has allowed 7H/1ER, 7K:8BB (5HBP) in 20.2IP, pitching to contact and letting the defense work behind him. Lucas Harrell has given up seven hits in each of his two starts, neither of which have gotten him out of the 5th inning.
*Feldman's 72 Game Score was the highest of the season, eclipsing Feldman's own Opening Day start where he recorded a 71. Feldman's Game Scores this season: 71, 66, 72.
*In seven starts against Darvish, the Astros have posted a composite .133/.201/.249 line, with 72K:15BB in 51IP.

*The Astros are 2-18 against Arlington since the beginning of 2013.
