HOUSTON (AP) -- J.A. Happ allowed two hits over six innings in his Houston debut and the Astros beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 on Friday night.
Happ and two minor leaguers came to the Astros on Thursday in a trade that send Roy Oswalt to Philadelphia. Oswalt allowed four earned runs and seven hits in six innings in the Phillies' 8-1 loss at Washington on Friday night.
The Brewers have lost three straight after winning their previous five games. The Astros won their third straight.
Happ, 12-5 as a rookie last season, made only his fourth major league start this year. He was sidelined with a left forearm strain. He had four walks and six strikeouts as the Astros combined on a four-hitter.
