Matz didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Twins after allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks across three innings, fanning six.

Matz has now fanned at least five in five straight starts, though he only lasted three innings and departed the contest after hurling 80 pitches (57 for strikes). Matz has gone undefeated in each of his last eight starts and has given up more than two earned runs just once in that span, which translates to a 2.95 ERA across 42.2 innings in that stretch.
