|1967 Dexter Press Unnumbered|
Giusti pitched in five games for the Colts in '62, but spent the better part of the next two years at Oklahoma City. He resurfaced for good in 1965, and with the fading of Turk Farrell, became the premier Astro righty until 1968. With at least five pitches, including a sharp curve and a "palm ball," Giusti won a team-high 15 games in 1966, pitched eight complete games in 1967, and led the Astros with 251 innings pitched while compiling a 3.19 ERA in 1968. He also led the club in losses in 1966 and 1967.
Giusti made his all-star appearance after he left the 'Stros, and no longer ranks in the career top ten in any of the Astros' pitching categories, but still deserves to be remembered as one of the best of the early Astro hurlers. . . .
