Hisashi Iwakuma moved to 5-3 after allowing just one run on six hits with no walks and six strikeouts over eight innings against the Rangers on Sunday.
Iwakuma continues to pitch like a champ and has now allowed just four runs over his last 22.1 innings (three starts) with an 18:2 K:BB and two wins. His overall ERA drops to 2.59 on the year with a 0.94 WHIP and those numbers figure to look even better after his next outing when he heads to Kansas City to face the Royals.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
