Astros SP Collin McHugh shines once again in victory Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

McHugh (14-7, 3.92 ERA) blanked the Yankees through his first six innings of work. But he served up a two-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the seventh inning, the only damage done against him. 

After the strong performance, McHugh finishes August 2-2 with a 1.89 ERA in five starts.

Astros' Collin McHugh struggles but still gets 12th win Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/28/2015) Astros starter Collin McHugh did not have the greatest of outings on Tuesday night, but he was given ample run support and was able to survive for his 12th win of the season. McHugh went five innings, allowing five runs on seven hits in the 10-5 win over the Angels. The right-hander displayed poor control, walking four while striking out three on the night. He threw just 58 of his 93 pitches for strikes.

McHugh (12-5, 4.43 ERA) gave up two runs in the first and two runs in the second before allowing a solo home run to Chris Iannetta in the third inning. But the Astros' offense was able to rally each of those innings, and McHugh left the game with his club leading 6-5. 

It was a rough start for McHugh, but he won his third straight start, and owns a 4.16 ERA over his past five outings.


Astros SP Collin McHugh earns 11th win by besting Boston


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

McHugh allowed just two runs on seven hits in seven innings with one walk and four strikeouts. He blanked the Red Sox through five before giving up run-scoring hits to Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts in the sixth.

The right-hander has certainly learned the value of a stronger offense in 2015. He finished last year 11-9 with a 2.73 ERA. He is 11-5 this season with a 4.25 ERA.

Astros SP Collin McHugh torched for eight runs on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Astros starter Collin McHugh was knocked around for eight runs on nine hits in just 3 2/3 innings on Saturday against the Mariners. McHugh walked two and struck out one, as he never really got going in this one. 

McHugh (6-3) got in deep trouble early, allowing five runs in the first inning, including a three-run bomb off the bat of Logan Morrison. Morrison got him again for a two-run shot in the third.

Saturday's performance was the worst of the season for McHugh in terms of innings pitched and earned runs allowed. His ERA ballooned to 5.08 on the season.

"You got to fix something," he said, per MLB.com. "I got to figure something out. It's frustrating because my stuff's not very sharp right now. But my body feels good, my arm feels good. I feel good in between starts. That's just a matter of kind of getting over the hump, getting back to where we need to go. I think I'm close, it's just today is one of those days, it gets away from you real fast."

He'll look for better results his next time out, scheduled for Thursday in Colorado.


Astros' Collin McHugh tosses quality start vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh didn't factor into the decision on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in six innings while striking out three in his team's 7-6 loss to the Blue Jays.

"As the starting pitcher, even if you don't have your sharpest stuff on the day, you gotta go out there every inning and try to keep it at par," McHugh said, per MLB.com.

McHugh served up a solo homer in the first inning and a two-run homer in the fourth, and he was on the hook for the loss before the Astros offense racked up four runs in the top of the seventh to take a 6-3 lead and put him in line for a win. However, the Blue Jays scored three runs of their own in the bottom of the ninth to pull out the victory.

McHugh owns a 4.34 ERA and 61:14 K:BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Mariners at home on Saturday.

"I don't think it's any secret, I haven't been very sharp lately with any of my outings probably in the last month," he said.


Astros SP Collin McHugh collects sixth win on Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh worked past a rough inning and received enough run support to pick up his sixth win of the season Tuesday night against the Orioles.

McHugh (6-2) surrendered a run-scoring single to Steve Pearce, a two-run triple to Ryan Flaherty and a run-scoring single to Manny Machado in the second inning. He settled down the rest of the way and was charged with four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over seven innings of a 6-4 victory.

McHugh has allowed four earned runs in back-to-back outings. He owns a 4.33 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP and 58:13 K:BB ratio over 70 2/3 innings pitched. His next start will come Sunday at Toronto.


Astros pitcher Collin McHugh allows nine hits in no-decision


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh allowed four runs on nine hits in Houston's 5-4 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday, but did not factor into a decision.

McHugh was in cruise control through the first three innings of work. However, the fourth inning was not kind to him. McHugh allowed a leadoff double to Jimmy Paredes followed by a bunt single by Adam Jones. Then, Baltimore executed a double steal to perfection, plating a run when Paredes stole home. 

McHugh then surrendered back-to-back home runs to Chris Davis and Steve Pearce before finally being able to get out of the inning. McHugh, who remains 5-2, moved his ERA to 3.68 in his six innings of work. He will look to get back on track when he faces the Orioles again on Tuesday.


Astros SP Collin McHugh allows nine hits in Friday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh surrendered a season-high nine hits over seven innings of work during Friday's 6-2 loss to the Tigers.

"I was pretty bad," he said, per MLB.com. "I was pretty bad with the fastball command. Too many cutters. Too many hard-hit balls. I was behind too many batters. They had nine hits in seven innings. Every mistake I made, they were hitting hard. No, I didn't feel very good about it."

The nine hits led to three runs, which all came on a home run by J.D. Martinez in the third inning. McHugh has pitched at least seven innings in five of his last seven starts. His ERA now stands at 3.43.

"I thought McHugh battled tonight," manager A.J. Hinch said. "He made one or two mistakes. It seemed like every mistake was hit with some authority. They worked him the other way, obviously the big blow from Martinez with the home run in that inning, and they tacked on a few more runs [in the eighth inning]. For McHugh, seven innings, three runs, it was a matter of one swing that took a lot out of his night."

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at Baltimore.


Astros pitcher Collin McHugh strikes out nine in win on Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings of work in Houston's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

McHugh worked efficiently through the first two innings. Then in the third, McHugh surrendered a lead off double to Steve Tolleson, who was sacrificed to third before Jose Bautista hit a sac fly to left to bring home a run. Then in the fourth, McHugh gave up another run on a second sac fly, this time via Ryan Goins. 

"It was tough from the get-go," McHugh said to MLB.com. "I felt like they had guys on base every inning. But overall we battled today."

McHugh, now 5-1, moved his ERA to 3.38 in 50 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Tigers.

"That leadoff batter, we had a hard time getting them out in the early part of the game," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "But [McHugh] missed bats when he needed to, and he managed innings the way you're supposed to when you're controlling damage.

"A really effective outing with all his pitches working at different times of the game. I was impressed with his perseverance through the traffic."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh took a step back with a rough outing, suffering his first loss of the season Tuesday night against San Francisco.

McHugh (4-1) allowed a bases-clearing double to Matt Duffy in the second inning and was charged with four unearned runs in the fifth. He yielded seven runs -- three earned -- on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 4 2/3 innings of work in an 8-1 defeat. Of his 91 pitches, 55 were strikes.

McHugh has allowed 13 runs -- nine earned -- over his last three starts (19 innings). He will look to get back on track Sunday afternoon at home against Toronto.


Astros SP Collin McHugh receives no-decision Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) While Astros pitcher Collin McHugh gave his team more than seven solid innings of work Thursday, he received a no-decision during the 3-2 win over the Angels.

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Giants.


Astros pitcher Collin McHugh moves to 4-0 with win Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh allowed four runs on six hits, including four home runs, in Houston's 11-4 win over the Mariners Saturday. 

McHugh's biggest rough patch came in the second inning when he allowed three solo shots to Nelson Cruz, Logan Morrison and Mike Zunino. Then in the sixth, Cruz got ahold of another one, his league-leading 13th of the season. But McHugh was able to limit the damage and add three strikeouts to his totals.

"It helps when your team scores 11," McHugh said per the Associated Press. "Our guys did an unbelievable job. Every time they threw a punch, our guys came back and counter-punched and even more. It makes it a little bit easier, breathe a little easier after the guys put you back on top."

McHugh, who moves to 4-0 with the win, moved his ERA to 3.41 and will look to keep rolling Thursday against the Angels.


Astros SP Collin McHugh receives no-decision Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Despite producing six solid innings of work, it was not enough to earn Astros pitcher Collin McHugh a win during Monday's victory over the Padres.

McHugh tossed six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits. He also struck out five batters, while walking none. His ERA now stands at 2.92.

"McHugh ran into a little bit of trouble, and I think he threw close to 30 pitches in the one inning, which took a lot out of him," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said after the game, per MLB.com. "When I hit for him in a National League game, he was pretty tired. Again, he threw well and certainly early in the game looked like he was in total control. It was a nice win."

The no-decision was the first time this season McHugh (3-0) failed to record a win for his efforts.

"All four of those guys with two outs [in the fifth], I had two strikes on," he said. "So it's real frustrating not to be able to make that big pitch when you need it. I'm used to being able to, at least the last little bit, being able to make those pitches."

His next projected start will be Saturday against the Mariners.
