Wittgren (2-3) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Rays after allowing five runs on three hits and a walk in one-third of an inning.

Wittgren entered the game to pitch the ninth inning with the score tied 4-4, but he was absolutely woeful. By the time he departed the game, Cleveland was down by five runs and he recorded just one out. The right-hander has looked far from dominant in recent outings, giving up runs in five of his last nine appearances. He has allowed 10 runs over nine innings during that span.
