He has In his last start he did not give up any earned runs in 7 innings of work, but still took a loss, as he got no run support in a 3-0 loss to the L.A. Dodgers.
The Astros are hot and they have a hot pitcher on the mound and even as a road underdog I have to go with them. The Padres’ bats will not help out Cashner much and the Astros will win this game and sweep the series.
