Dallas Keuchel named AL Pitcher of the Week

Dallas Keuchel had himself a week: 2-0, 17.2IP, 9H/2ER, 14K:1BB, 1.02 ERA/0.57 WHIP.

And that means he has been named as the AL Pitcher of the Week, the first time that an Astros pitcher has been named Pitcher of the Week since Roy Oswalt got the honor in 2008. And even more bizarrely Keuchel is only the 3rd Astros lefty to win the award, joining Bob Knepper in 1981 and Joe Sambito in 1980.
