Royals' Jakob Junis: Twirls complete game in win
Junis (7-12) got the win Tuesday, pitching a complete game with seven strikeouts against the Tigers. He allowed two runs on six hits.
Junis didn't issue a walk for the third time in four starts and was efficient in this one, tossing 104 pitches (68 strikes) en route to his first career complete game. The 25-year-old allowed a run early before yielding a solo blast in the eighth, but he otherwise stifled the Detroit bats for much of the night. He'll round out August with 38:8 K:BB over 36.2 innings and a 2.95 ERA on the month to lower his ERA on the year to 4.53 -- the lowest its been since mid-June. Next up is a road matchup in Cleveland on Monday.
