From Elias: Bud Norris allowed 9 ER one day after his teammate Lucas Harrell allowed 9 ER. The last time starting pitchers on one team allowed 9+ ER on back-to-back days was on June 11-12, 2010 when Jamie Moyer and Joe Blanton both allowed 9 each at Boston. Norris allowed 9 ER in 1 2/3 IP one day after Derek Holland allowed 8 ER in 1 2/3 IP. It's the first time that starting pitchers allowed 8+ ER in fewer than 2 innings on back-to-back days since September 22-23, 2010 when Johnny Cueto and Ryan Dempster did it.
Bud Norris allowed 9 ER in 1 2/3 IP. He is the 5th Astros pitcher to allow at least 9 ER in fewer than 2 IP.[+]
Carlos Gonzalez is the first Rockies player to homer in 4 consecutive plate appearances.
