  • According to baseball-reference.com/boxes/HOU/HOU201709030.shtml, Will Harris was awarded the win. Are you asking why that is the case? If I had to guess, I would say the official scorer felt that he did a better job of preserving the lead than Tyler Clippard (who allowed an inherited runner to score).
