Blanton had pitched well in his first two starts back in the rotation ahead of Monday's start, but the Astros had him figured out. They plated two runs in the second and three in the third on five hits and four walks. The right-hander struck out only two. Including his time in the bullpen, Blanton owns a 3.14 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 26/7 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings. He has a date at home against the Twins in his next start. Jun 29 - 11:20 PM
