Astros' Lance McCullers strikes out 11 in complete-game victory


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Astros rookie pitcher Lance McCullers recorded the first complete game of his career on Wednesday, giving up one earned run on four hits in nine innings while striking out 11 and walking none in his team's 3-1 win over the Orioles.

"Just pounded the zone early," McCullers said, per MLB.com. "They started getting pretty aggressive. [Catcher Jason] Castro and I talked and tried to use that to our advantage. Whatever pitch I throw, try throwing it for a strike. Let them kind of, you know, force the pace of the game."

McCullers (3-0) showcased his considerable upside in the win, throwing 73 of his 107 pitches for strikes. He retired 15 straight batters at one point before surrendering a single with two outs in the ninth inning, but he buckled down after a meeting with manager A.J. Hinch on the mound and struck out the final batter of the game.

"When he gets ahead, he's very, very difficult to pick how he's going to attack you to finish you, but he finished hitters very well," Hinch said. "Obviously, 11 [strikeouts] is going to indicate that a little bit. He was very, very good tonight."

McCullers owns a 1.88 ERA and 29:6 K:BB ratio in 24 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the White Sox in Chicago on Monday.

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers to start this weekend against Tigers


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Astros pitcher Lance McCullers will start this weekend against the Tigers in Detroit on Saturday, manager A.J. Hinch said before Tuesday's game.

"I thought he handled himself very well and guys were excited to get him out there and he even gave 'em a little bit of ammunition to get to welcome him in, with the Batman shoes and the bravado," Hinch said to the Houston Chronicle.

McCullers allowed one run on three hits in 4 2/3 innings in his major-league debut on Monday against the Athletics. He struck out five with three walks in the contest.


Astros P Lance McCullers fares well in major-league debut


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Astros pitcher Lance McCullers impressed in his major-league debut, throwing five strikeouts in a 2-1 loss to the Athletics. 

McCullers, sporting some Batman baseball cleats, allowed only one earned run in 4 2/3 innings. This gives him a 1.93 ERA to start his career. He walked three batters and gave up three hits in 93 pitches.

"I thought he hung in there pretty well," manager A.J. Hinch said after the game, per MLB.com. "First-night adrenaline pumping, he had his pitches, made some really good pitches for strikeouts. And he had a swing-and-miss strikeout on every pitch -- fastball, his big breaking ball and his changeup. So you know he'll get more pitch efficient as he gets away from the first-game adrenaline, but all in all, we obviously want to get five [innings] out of him. He came close to that, but for a major-league debut, with all the attention on him, I thought he handled himself very well."

McCullers was relieved by Joe Thatcher, who was credited with the loss.

“He won’t be spooked. He won’t be intimidated,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. “It’s exciting to get an arm of his level to test him against major league hitters. He’s got a lot of confidence coming out of Double-A.”
