Happ (0-1) gave up five runs on four hits and one walk over two-plus innings in a loss to the Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. He struck out two. This postseason couldn't have started much worse for Happ, as he allowed a three-run blast to J.D. Martinez in the first inning and then gave up two more hits in the top of the third inning before being pulled from the game. This performance is even more frustrating given that Happ entered Game 1 with a 1.68 ERA in his last five starts.
Happ will take the hill for Game 1 of the ALDS against Boston on Friday. After Luis Severino pitched the AL Wild Card Game versus Oakland on Wednesday, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see Happ get the call for the series opener, especially given his past success against the Red Sox. Since joining the Yankees prior to the trade deadline in July, Happ has posted a 2.69 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 63 strikeouts in 63.2 innings. He will match up with Chris Sale for Game 1 of the best-of-five series.
Happ (17-6) picked up the win Friday, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks over six innings while striking out seven in an 11-6 win over the Red Sox. The southpaw held Boston scoreless through five innings before his former Blue Jays teammate Steve Pearce launched a grand slam off him, but with the Yankees backing Happ with four homers of their own, the final outcome was never in doubt. He proved to be a huge addition at the trade deadline, going 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for New York, and Happ should have a prominent place in the Yankees' playoff rotation should they get past the A's in the AL Wild Card game.
Happ gave up one run on five his and two walks across five innings during Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Orioles. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision. Happ allowed just a second-inning home run to Tim Beckham over five innings. The left-hander has won only one of his last four starts, despite giving up just two runs over 23 innings. Happ has a 3.57 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP for the season and is next slated to face the Red Sox on the road Friday.
Happ gave up one unearned run on four hits and three walks across six innings during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision. Happ held the Red Sox in check Tuesday, with the lone run scoring on a sacrifice fly following a passed ball by Gary Sanchez. The Yankees rallied for three runs during the bottom of the seventh inning, but the veteran southpaw had already exited the game. Happ has allowed two runs (one earned) and 12 hits over 18 innings during his last three starts, and currently lines up to start Sunday against the Orioles.
