by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:34 pm ET) Astros rookie starter Vincent Velasquez was solid in his outing against the Indians on Tuesday. He went 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits, while walking two and striking out five. 

However, he was left with a tough-luck loss, as the Astros were unable to push across a run in the 2-0 defeat.

Following the game, the Astros optioned Velasquez to Double-A Corpus Christi in order to preserve innings. With the All-Star break approaching, Velasquez is not expected to pitch for the Hooks, according to MLB.com.

Kluber needed 119 pitches (80 strikes) to get through the 6 2/3 innings, his shortest outing since June 14.
