Astros pitcher throws mini-perfecto

The Houston Astros’ Jarred Cosart threw five innings of perfect baseball against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, striking out nine batters by mixing up a fastball in the 90s with a wicked breaking ball.

Houston’s Raul Valdes took the ball for the sixth inning but lost the no-hitter on a single by Nationals second-baseman Anthony Rendon.

Cosart last year went 1-1 with a 1.95 ERA with Houston last year.
