Nolasco (6-13) lasted just 3.2 innings after giving up four runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts in a losing effort against the Mariners on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

This was Nolasco's first loss since July 26 despite posting a 5.53 ERA over an eight-start stretch. The veteran has given up a homer in three consecutive starts and owns a 1.92 HR/9 through 29 starts, which ranks second among all qualified pitchers. Nolasco's dangerous pitching style doesn't bode well for his chances against a hard-hitting Astros lineup next Thursday.
