Happ gave up six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three through 3.2 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday.

Over the last month, he has a 3-2 record with a 4.02 ERA, but he also has given up 10 home runs. Happ will look to bounce back in his next start Saturday against the Royals.

Happ (2-3) picked up the win versus Seattle on Thursday, allowing no runs on one hit and three walks while striking out seven. Happ gave up only a harmless Tom Murphy third-inning single while establishing a season high with his seven strikeouts. The main knock on the lefty in this appearance was his inefficiency; three walks and a hit batsman led to a short outing in which Happ threw 94 pitches in five innings. He'll face the Orioles on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.
