On Saturday, Dallas Keuchel will attempt to win his 10th game of the season when he and the Houston Astros face off against right-hander Hector Noesi and the Chicago White Sox.
In his last start, Dallas Keuchel pitched 6.2 innings against the Texas Rangers on the road and came away with his ninth win of the season. He allowed four runs on eight hits in that outing and struck out three batters while walking just one. He is now 9-5 on the year and has only given up a total of six home runs in 115.1 innings on the mound.
Moises Sierra has more at-bats versus Keuchel than any of the other White Sox hitters, but he is hitless against him with one strikeout. Alejandro De Aza is 1-for-3 against Keuchel with a triple and a strikeout.
Last Friday, Hector Noesi only made it through 4.2 innings against the Cleveland Indians and ended up suffering his seventh loss of the season. He gave up six earned runs on seven hits in that outing and walked four while striking out four. Noesi now has a 3-7 record with a very high 5.26 ERA and he has given up 98 hits in 87.1 innings.
Astros rookie George Springer has two hits in four at-bats against Noesi with a triple and an RBI. Catcher Jason Castro is 1-for-3 against him and is the only player on the Astros who has hit a home run off of the right-hander.
