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.
