Allard (4-1) gave up two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two through five innings to take the loss against the Astros on Wednesday.
A 2:4 K:BB does not jump off the page, but Allard fired four scoreless innings before giving up a two-run home run in his final frame. The 22-year-old has a 4.25 ERA with 32 strikeouts through eight starts this season. Allard is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Red Sox at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
Allard threw four innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Thursday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits across four innings, striking out one and walking three in a 6-4 win for the Rangers.

He struggled with his command, issuing three free passes and laboring for 92 pitches. The 22-year-old left-hander has a 4.34 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 30:14 K:BB in 37.1 big-league innings this season.
Allard (4-0) picked up the win against the Orioles on Thursday, giving up one earned run on eight hits over 6.1 innings, striking out two and walking two as the Rangers prevailed 3-1.

The 22-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.78 with the effort, to go along with a 1.38 WHIP and 29:11 K:BB across 33.1 big-league innings on the season.
