"Especially knowing with the way the offseason went with trade (speculation) and the talk about (White Sox left-hander Jose) Quintana coming over, it means a lot to me and to a lot of the other starters that they had confidence and faith in us that we were the best guys to get the job done and they kept us around Houston". Keuchel is off to a strong start this season, going 2-0 with a 0.86 ERA and pitching seven innings in each of his first three outings.
"I was pounding the strike zone", Ramirez said.
Astros: SS Carlos Correa (bruised right hand) was out of the lineup for a third straight game. "Juan is a really good fit up here".
