News: Samardzija improved to 2-1 in an Oakland uniform Thursday, allowing one run over eight innings against the Astros. He struck out six and didn't walk a batter. Impact: Control has always been an issue for Samardzija -- even this year, he walked 31 in 108 innings with the Cubs prior to being traded -- but he's walked just two batters in four starts spanning 30 innings since coming over to Oakland. But his strikeout rate has fallen too -- he's fanned just 20 in that time. Nonetheless, he'll look to keep the good times rolling in a rematch with these Astros in Houston on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )
