June 24 8:32 AM PT9:32 AM MT10:32 AM CT11:32 AM ET11:32 ET15:32 GMT23:32 8:32 AM MST10:32 AM EST11:02 AM VEN19:32 UAE10:32 AM CT-Joe Musgrove fell to 4-7, allowing nine runs on 12 hits and one walk in 3.2 innings, as the Houston Astros lost to the Seattle Mariners 13-3 on Friday. Musgrove struck out four, ending the game with a 6.01 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Musgrove has now lost all three starts since returning from a DL stint and has been pounded for 16 runs and 23 hits - including five homers - in 14 innings during that stretch. He may not be long for the Astros' rotation, especially if Houston adds another pitcher prior to the trade deadline.
