    This time, it happened to former Phillies prospect Jarred Cosart of the Astros. The Houston Astros planned on sending top pitching prospect Jarred Cosart back to Triple-A Oklahoma City after tonight's MLB debut against the Tampa Bay Rays. LOUIS – Astros manager Bo Porter called the media back into his office late Wednesday and delivered the news: Jarred Cosart had a ticket to the Show. Cosart is the first pitcher in baseball’s modern era to end an opponent’s win streak of eight games or longer by throwing eight or more scoreless innings during an MLB debut, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. ST. Jarred Cosart had difficulty getting to sleep, so he spent much of the night before his major league debut online and learned he was about to face the hottest team in baseball. Saturday, Porter acknowledged the Astros can’t ignore Cosart’s highly impressive start and a club in need of a spark will give him full consideration for a starting role after the All-Star break. James Loney led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a single but Cosart forced Wil Myers into a double play and finished the inning with a groundout by Matt Joyce. Not only did he have to go on the road to face the red hot Tampa Bay Rays offense, he was also matched up against the defending American League Cy Young winner David Price.
