Dunning (5-10) took the loss Sunday versus Cleveland, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk in three innings. He struck out three.
Cleveland had little trouble putting traffic on the bases, and Dunning couldn't escape trouble, as he allowed three runs in the third inning. The right-hander ends the season with a 4.51 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 114:43 K:BB over 117.2 innings in his first full season. He should be good to go for a full starter's workload in 2022 after working abbreviated appearances after a stay on the COVID-19 injured list in late August and early September.
