HOUSTON -- In what's become ritual, Astros ace Dallas Keuchel sat before reporters before Wednesday's game an hour removed from winning his third American League Pitcher of the Month honor, even though he sported the third-lowest August ERA of the Astros' surging rotation.
"I was looking at some of the August stats from some of the other guys, [Scott Feldman], [Collin McHugh], [Mike Fiers], and they were just as good, if not better, than me," Keuchel, who finished the month at 4-1 with a 1.94 ERA said. "I was very surprised."
