May 31, 2011:Jordan Lyles, the 20-year-old top prospect, makes his big league debut an impressive one. He blanks the Cubs for seven innings but his own throwing error puts him behind, 3-1, after eight. The Astros respond with six runs in the top of the ninth for a 7-3 stunner. Brett Wallace and Hunter Pence have three hits each, including a homer. Fernando Rodriguez gets his first big league win, not Lyles.
Aug 3, 2011:After deadline trades send Hunter Pence and Michael Bourn away for prospects, the rebuilding Astros take 2-of-3 from Cincinnati, including a 5-4 victory that is the first major league win for 20-year-old Jordan Lyles. Outfielder J.D. Martinez, called up from AA less than a week before, smashes a homer and double to drive in four. 21-year-old Jose Altuve and 22-year-old Jimmy Paredes add two hits apiece.
Aug 24, 2012:Interim manager Tony DeFrancesco gets his first win as manager of the Astros in a 3-1 triumph over the Mets to snap a seven-game losing streak. Jordan Lyles scatters three hits over six innings for the win. DeFrancesco was promoted from AAA Oklahoma City after Brad Mills was fired on August 18th with a record of 39-82. The victory is just the 13th road win for the Astros all season. DeFrancesco would lead Houston to a 15-15 mark over September and October, but it was still not enough to become the new full-time manager.
