Happ gave up four runs on eight hits and a walk while fanning two across five innings Thursday against the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.
Happ got off to a rough start and gave up three runs during the first inning, but he settled in afterward, even though it ended up being the second straight outing where he allowed multiple homers. The veteran has given up at least one homer in five of his last six contests and has also allowed four or more runs five times during that stretch, so he's been struggling on the mound since mid-May. Happ's next start is scheduled for next week against the Mariners on the road.
