Very nice major league debut for Justin Grimm. 6 innings, 6 hits allowed, 7 Ks, no walks, 3 runs (including a solo home run). Per Joey Matches, he's just the 11th pitcher to strike out at least seven and walk no one in his major league debut. He's also just the third Ranger pitcher to strike out at least seven in his major league debut (Don Stanhouse, Paul Mirabella, and David Clyde are the others). He showed a swing-and-miss breaking ball, commanded his fastball well, and showed good composure on the mound. The Astros hit him hard from time to time -- aside from the home run, he also allowed three doubles -- but he continued to battle and throw strikes, and ended up doing better in his first major league appearance than any of us likely expected he would.
