Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt held the Brewers to two hits, one earned run, and three walks while striking out three in six innings of work on Friday. He was still hit with his sixth loss of the season despite the solid effort.
Oswalt has been his usual dominant self this season, with a 1.17 WHIP and 3.23 ERA, but yet, he has a mediocre 5-6 record. Be patient with him, because even with the inconsistent run support, the wins are bound to roll in sooner or later.

I hate to bash anybody, but Fanball is lacking quite often.
May 27 Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny scattered six hits, two earned runs, and one walk while striking out four in 7 1/3 innings against the Giants on Thursday. Despite the solid effort, he did not factor into the game's decision.
Views: Penny continues to be very inconsistent this season, as he'll toss seven shutout inning one start and then get rocked for 12 hits and six earned runs in just over four innings in his next outing. One issue is for a strikeout pitcher like Penny, to post a strikeouts per nine innings rate that is over two K's less than the previous season should raise some red flags. In fact, his 4.81 rate is the lowest it's been during his five-year career. Penny is still a solid pitcher, but something is remarkably different about him this season and because of that, we don't suggest he play a crucial role on your fantasy team at this point.
