Happ (3-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits and a walk to go along with five strikeouts over four innings as he took the loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. Happ gave up at least a run in three of the four innings he pitched. Things went south fast after he gave up a solo home run to J.P. Crawford to lead off the first. He then loaded the bases in the second after allowing the first three men to reach before Shed Long found the gap in right center for a bases-clearing triple. Two more runs came around to score before Happ's day was all said and done. He has really lost his groove after an excellent start to the season, as he now carries a 9.84 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB over his last seven starts. His next chance to take the mound is expected to come at the beginning of next week at home against the Reds.
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.
Happ allowed five earned runs on nine hits while striking out two across five innings in the loss to the Royals on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision. Happ's struggles with the long ball continued Thursday as he surrendered three bombs. Salvador Perez took him deep twice and Hunter Dozier added one of his own. Luckily for Happ, all three home runs were solo shots. The 38-year-old has a 5.61 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 51.1 innings. In addition, he is not a high-strikeout candidate, as he has a 6.5 K/9. On a good note, he didn't walk anyone for the first time this season.
Happ (3-2) earned the win Saturday against the Royals after allowing two runs on three hits with five strikeouts and two walks over five innings. The veteran lefty served up a two-run homer to Salvador Perez during the third inning but otherwise kept Kansas City off the board and picked up his first win since April 28. Happ has a 5.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 35:16 K:BB across 46.1 innings this season.
Happ didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Cleveland after giving up four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out 10 across six innings. Happ bounced back from a couple of ugly outings and fanned a season-high 10, a figure that came a bit out of nowhere since his previous season-high mark for strikeouts was just four. That said, Happ has struggled badly of late and owns a 9.82 ERA in four appearances this month.
