Wacha (3-4) allowed two runs on three hits over six innings Friday, striking out seven without walking a batter and earning a win over Minnesota.
Aside from a pair of solo homers by Jorge Polanco and Ryan Jeffers, Wacha cruised through the Twins' lineup in Friday's win. The Rays managed to push five runs across in the first three innings, leading the 30-year-old to his first win since July 7. He's allowed just three runs through 10.1 innings (2.61 ERA) over his last two appearances after registering a 6.93 ERA in his previous 11. Wacha will carry a 5.54 ERA into his projected road start against Detroit next week.
