Mengden (2-2) allowed just one run on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts over eight innings in a win Monday over the White Sox.

Mengden lasted into the sixth inning for the first time all season and nearly managed to go the distance. That's in part due to a rough White Sox lineup that managed to go 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position, but Mengden drew 14 swinging strikes and tossed 20 first-pitch strikes to 30 hitters. He was as sharp as you could ask, and he brought his ERA all the way down to 4.50 in the process.
