HOUSTON -- Collin McHugh has earned his spot in the Astros rotation. Minnesota Twins T-shirts . McHugh allowed two hits over 8 2-3 stellar innings as the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Sunday. McHugh (2-0), who was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on April 22 to make a start after Scott Feldman had been placed on the disabled list, followed up his first outing where he struck out 12 and allowed three hits in 6 2-3 innings at Seattle on Tuesday with another dominant performance. "When we sent him out there in the ninth it was with the complete hope that he was going to be able to finish what he started," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "That was tremendous. Attacking the strike zone with all three of his pitches and to pitch that well against a really good hitting Oakland As lineup speaks volumes to Collin and the way he and (Carlos) Corporan worked today." McHugh struck out seven and walked three, allowing one run in the longest outing of his career. His previous longest outing had been seven innings on Aug. 23, 2012, against Colorado when he was a member of the New York Mets. "I actually wasnt even thinking about the hits," McHugh said. "I was more mad about the walks. I walked a couple guys early, and with this team, you cant really give them free base runners because anyone in that lineup can do damage to you. As I kind of got momentum, I started to roll with it, and it got easier to make pitches and kind of feel the flow and go with it." After the first, McHugh retired 23 of the next 24 batters, including 19 straight before Brandon Moss was hit by a pitch with two outs in the ninth. Moss stole second and came around to score on Alberto Callaspos single -- McHughs first run allowed in 15 1-3 innings this season. Porter said McHugh has "earned his keep". "I dont think he put us in a tough spot; I think he put himself in a really good spot," Porter said. "Performance pretty much speaks for itself. This guy has earned the right to get the ball the next turn." McHugh said he hadnt had a lot of consistent starts in his career, so to know he would get the ball again in five days felt nice. He became the first pitcher in Astros history go 6 2-3 innings or more while allowing one run or less with seven or more strikeouts in each of his first two starts as an Astro. Raul Valdes got the final out to complete the two hitter. Jed Lowrie, who singled in the first inning, drew a walk in the third for McHughs lone base runner until the ninth. "He had a great cutter early on and was a little bit harder with his stuff early on," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of McHugh. "Then coming back later in the game he mixed in his curveball better and his change-up. He really did keep us off balance." The right-hander, who Houston claimed off waivers from Colorado during the off-season, got out of trouble in the first after loading the bases with two outs with a walk to Callaspo by getting Josh Reddick to pop out to end the inning. Jose Altuve had two hits, including a two-run home run in the seventh, and Jonathan Villar also had two hits, including a two-run triple. Tommy Milone (0-2) allowed four runs on five hits with two strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. The left-hander was just effective for most of the day, retiring 12 out of 13, including nine in a row, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. Villar extended the lead to 3-0 with a two-out, two-run triple to the left centerfield gap in the seventh, scoring Matt Dominguez and Carlos Corporan and ending Milones day. Altuve greeted Dan Otero with a two-run home run to the Crawford Boxes in left to up the lead to 5-0. Dexter Fowler gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the third with a groundout scoring Villar, who had doubled with one out and reached third on an Altuve single. NOTES: Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was out of the lineup for the third straight game with a strained left hamstring. Cespedes left in the seventh inning of Oaklands 10-1 win over Houston on Thursday after legging out an infield single. ... Feldman, who has been on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 18 with right bicep tendinitis, threw Saturday and was fine and was on track to make his next scheduled start, manager Bo Porter said, adding that could be either May 3 or May 4. Feldman is eligible to come off the DL May 3.

And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury.Andrew Beef Johnston admitted he enjoyed the mad atmosphere when watching the Ryder Cup and said he would love to have been involved in it. The actions of a small minority of the partisan American support were criticised by the likes of Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett after Europe lost 17-11 to the United States at Hazeltine.However, Johnston said he can understand why the crowd get so worked up when backing their team. It looked mad. It looked mad, Johnston told Sky Sports News HQ. But my theory on it is sometimes when you are watching golf and you have your favourites and theres 150 in the field, you want the best guys like your favourites to do well. Spectators flocked to the first tee at Hazeltine But when you go into Ryder Cup it is team and it becomes more passionate when its a team. In football you get it, in cricket you get it and stuff like that, and obviously, you dont want it going too far - people being rude and out of order - but you want that [passion].I kind of enjoy it when they are cheering when one of the balls is maybe rolling off the green and stuff like that. It just gives it something completely different, but there is a fine line for it. Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy went toe to toe on Sunday I love that kind of atmosphere and I thought what Rory [McIlroy] and Patrick Reed did on those first eight holes [on Sunday] was ridiculous. I was buzzing for it, let alone being in the crowd there. They must have been going absolutely crackers with the performance they both put on.But I did have sympathy. Its difficult, but its one of those things and Im sure the boys will bounce back, man. They are great players and I just think it is one of those things. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ?£6.

Johnston is now hoping to qualify for the European team in 2018 when they will bid to win the Ryder Cup back at Le Golf National near Paris.Id love to be there, he said. Sitting there watching it, I was itching to be out there playing, so I would love to be there.Next up for Johnston is this weeks Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and he is looking forward to continuing his decent run of form after overcoming a bout of flu. Ive had a bit of flu but its nothing that bad, he said. I took it easy the last couple of days but Im having a good practice now and looking forward to getting going.My form has been pretty good. I played well in Switzerland [and finished third in the European Masters] then went out to the States for the Web.com Tour Finals and managed to pick up a PGA Tour card there, so its been busy but its been really good. Ryder Cup candidates for 2018 Andrew Beef Johnston or Shane Lowry - who will make the European team in 2018? I cant wait [to play on the PGA Tour]. Ive got a lot of messages saying come to this tournament, come here, and its just going to be a great year all round.
