Over 4 2/3 brutal innings, the Japanese righthander was lit up for 14 runs on 16 hits, including seven home runs, as both the Astros and Rays made mincemeat out of his offerings.

Jaime Garcia combined with three relievers on a four-hit shutout, and he produced the game's only runs with an RBI single on which a throwing error allowed a second baserunner to score.
