Rays' Nathan Karns allows one hit in no-decision
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays starter Nathan Karns was pulled after six shutout innings in Friday's game. Karns allowed just one hit, but he settled for a no-decision after the Tampa bullpen gave up the lead.

Karns walked two and struck out seven.

"As long as he’s throwing strikes he’s going to give us opportunities to win, which he’s done just about every start he’s been out there," manager Kevin Cash said. "We really like what he’s done for us and want him to maintain that."

Karns has given up two or fewer runs in his last six starts and eight out of his last nine. His next start will be Wednesday at the Angels.

Rays SP Nathan Karns focused on not giving away at-bats
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rays starting pitcher Nathan Karns might have taken a loss in his last start Saturday against the A's, but he hasn't allowed more than two runs in his last five starts and he's really happy he has gotten his walk rate under control.

The right-hander had walked 14 batters in his first four starts, which included three outings of four walks. However, he hasn't walked more than two batters in his last five starts. He has a 2.30 ERA in his last five outings after posting a 5.32 ERA in his first four starts.

"I’m not making the mistakes that I made at the beginning of the year," he said, per The Tampa Tribune. "I’m kind of growing and understanding how the game works at this level. I’m just trying to stay on top of throwing strikes and limiting my walks.

"There’s still a lot to work on, but those are the things I’ve focused on: to challenge hitters and not give away free at-bats."
