The right-hander threw seven solid innings, and Carlos Gomez delivered a two-run, go-ahead single as the Houston Astros beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1.
Dating to Aug. 1, 2014, McHugh is 20-5 with a 3.47 ERA. He was 4-17 before then, including an 0-8 record with an 8.94 ERA in stints with the Mets and Rockies from 2012-13.

HOUSTON — Vince Wilfork bristled when asked what he could teach J.J. Watt.
Then the 12-year veteran and first-year Houston Texan let out a hearty chuckle.
“Teach him what?” he bellowed. “What am I going to teach J.J.?”
The big nose tackle has joined Watt, last year’s Defensive Player of the Year, in Houston after spending the first 11 years of his career with the New England Patriots. While he isn’t expecting to serve as a teacher to Watt, he thinks he could learn a thing or two from the 26-year old.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The plan to give Peyton Manning a breather at training camp is designed to pay dividends not only for the five-time MVP but also his backup.
Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Brock Osweiler will get his biggest chance yet to prove he’s a worthy successor.
“Well, we’re going to evaluate him through training camp and evaluate him through the preseason,” GM John Elway said.
Osweiler’s extended apprenticeship has left him with just 30 passes on his resume.
However, he’s not looking at this as his August audition.
