Worth noting

• When Hisashi Iwakuma shut out the Astros for the first two innings of Saturday's 9-8 win, he extended his string of scoreless innings on the road to 27, dating back to the end of 2013. That broke the previous club record of 25 by Brian Holman (1984) and Randy Johnson (1994). The Astros scored two runs off Iwakuma in the third to end that run.

• Zunino walked twice on Saturday, including a bases-loaded pass to drive in a run. Zunino came into the game with just one base on balls in 22 games this season and that was an intentional walk.
