HOUSTON — Houston rookie Brett Oberholtzer was focused this week on improving after allowing 15 hits and eight runs combined in his previous two starts. His dedication to turning things around certainly paid off on Sunday.
Oberholtzer pitched a four-hitter and Jason Castro hit an RBI double in the eighth inning, lifting the Astros to a 2-0 win over the Seattle Mariners.
“I worked really hard in the bullpen this week really trying to push my A-plus stuff out of me,” he said. “The last couple of starts it really wasn’t clicking for me, but today it was.”
