Samardzija tossed a gem Monday, holding the Astros to two runs over eight innings of work.
Samardzija struck out 10 in the outing and walked just one. The start was a nice recovery for Samardzija, who allowed seven runs in 3.2 innings in his last start. Samardzija will try for his fifth win as an Athletic when he takes the mound against the Angels this weekend.
