Alexi Ogando gets a no decision
He's still undefeated at 5-0, after getting a no-decision. The right-hander tied a career-high by allowing five runs and he also gave up a career-high seven hits.
Ogando was moving along nicely for the first three innings until a five-run fourth inning highlighted by Brayan Pena's three-run home run.
"I felt good, but it was only one bad pitch," Ogando said. "They battled and I kept trying to make pitches to keep us in the game and set up the win."
Ogando retired the side in order in the fifth and got into trouble again in the sixth. Manager Ron Washington had seen enough and went to Michael Kirkman to keep it close until the hitters got going, which they eventually did.
It was the most runs Ogando has allowed since April 17 in New York, when the Yankees reached him for five runs in a 6-5 victory.
After that game, Ogando gave up just six runs over his next six starts until Sunday.
