Happ did not factor into the decision in Sunday's win over the Padres, allowing three earned runs on four hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out two.
The left-hander was reasonably effective during his time on the mound, getting through his first pair of frames unscathed before allowing a pair of RBI singles to Fernando Tatis and Wil Myers and a run-scoring groundout to Eric Hosmer over his final two innings. Happ started off his Cardinals tenure with five straight strong outings during which he pitched to a 3-0 record, 2.22 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, but he's subsequently lost two of three decisions and generated 8.22 and 1.63 figures in those respective categories over his next four trips to the mound. Happ will look to sharpen back up in his next start, tentatively scheduled for Friday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
