Incredibly, Keuchel became the first Astros starter to pitch into the eighth inning in nearly three months. His 7 2/3 innings on the eve of Justin Verlander's highly anticipated team debut marked the longest start the American League leaders have gotten since Keuchel completed eight innings all the way back on May 5 against the Los Angeles Angels.
