Worth noting

• Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart notched a rare achievement Monday when he struck out Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez looking in the first inning. It was the first time in more than a year -- 154 games to be exact -- that someone had struck him out looking. It hadn't been done since May 21, 2013, when Matt Albers -- currently on the Astros, but then with Cleveland -- got Martinez looking.

Cosart threw Martinez four consecutive curveballs to start the at-bat before capping it with a fastball.

"You throw a guy four straight curveballs at 78, 79 [mph], you got it in their mind to set up for something 78. And to get a fastball down and away, that's pretty much the perfect spot," Cosart said. "I think it might have just froze him and caught him off-guard. That was huge. I take a lot of pride in that."
