2006 - Taylor Buchholz gets his first big league win, blanking the Pirates, 3-0. Buchholz has a one-hitter with one out to go before an error and a single causes Manager Phil Garner to bring Brad Lidge in to get the final out. Craig Biggio scores all three runs using a single, a double and a homer. The Astros' all-time franchise record climbs above .500 for the first time since early 1962.
1986 - Alan Ashby homers off Atlanta's Duane Ward in the ninth for a 3-2 triumph. Charley Kerfeld, wearing his lucky Jetsons tee-shirt under his jersey, is the winning pitcher.
1980 - Nolan Ryan 's first win as an Astro comes in an 8-0 victory over Cincinnati. It's the initial dividend from baseball's first million-dollar-per-year contract. Ryan fans seven and walks six in seven innings. Jose Cruz is the star with three hits and five RBIs, including a bases-loaded triple in the first inning.
1974 - Cesar Cedeno drills two homers and drives in five to pace Houston past Atlanta, 7-0 . Claude Osteen, who was dealt by the Dodgers over the winter, scatters seven hits.
1966 - Dave Giusti surrenders eight hits but walks away with a 2-0 shutout against the Giants. Giusti delivers three hits of his own but solo homers by Joe Morgan and Jim Gentile provide all the scoring.

Houston Astros recap - 04/21/18 - Reddick Slams Chisox
Reddick Slams Chisox
Keuchel Wins First Of Year

Farquhar: Best wishes
(c) Associated Press
The Astros were determined to get Dallas Keuchel his first win of the season Saturday. After plating eight runs in the first two innings and ten runs after four, all the lefty had to do was survive five innings pitched to claim his first victory, which he did in a 10-1 rout of the White Sox.

The victory kept Houston in first place in the AL West following their season-best fifth straight win.

The former Cy Young Award winner lasted six innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out six. His ERA dropped to 3.10. Hector Rondon, Brad Peacock and Tony Sipp provided a hitless inning of scoreless relief each to mop up.

Josh Reddick was the star on offense, blasting a grand slam off Lucas Giolito in the second. He added a solo shot off Chris Volstad in the fourth. Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman and Marwin Gonzalez also contributed a pair of hits each.

Almost 24,000 sat in Bear weather of 53 degrees and many booed loudly after it was clear the White Sox would fall for the 13th time in 17 games. After last year's sell-off, the ChiSox are in fierce competition to tank for the overall first draft choice 14 months from now.

Lance McCullers (2-1) will try to wrap up the series sweep Sunday afternoon in a 1:10 pm Central finale. Reynaldo Lopez (0-2) is the projected starter for Chicago.

AstrosDaily.com sends our best wishes to White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar who collapsed with a brain aneurysm during Friday's contest. It is good that he got the help he needed quickly and the hope is for a speedy recovery.
