Happ (10-6) lasted just 3.2 innings Thursday, yielding five unearned runs on five hits and a walk while taking the loss against Boston. He struck out six and gave up a home run. Happ was solid in the first few innings but totally unraveled in the fourth, allowing all five runs with the bulk of the damage coming from a Mookie Betts grand slam. July has been an absolute nightmare for Happ as he's allowed 13 earned runs in his first two starts this month and he's now lost his last three starts. He'll take the mound next Saturday (July 21) when Toronto hosts Baltimore as he looks to get back in the win column.
Happ (10-5) took the loss Saturday as the Blue Jays fell 8-5 to the Yankees, as he coughed up six runs on four hits and six walks over 2.2 innings while striking out five. It was the shortest outing of the season for the left-hander and his second straight awful start, and Happ has seen his ERA balloon from 3.62 to 4.44 as a result. He's not doing his trade value any favors with his sudden skid, and things may not get any better for him the next time he takes the mound Friday in Boston.
Happ (10-4) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out four across 5.2 innings as he took the loss Sunday against the Tigers. Happ's outing fell apart in the fifth inning, when Nick Castellanos hit a grand slam to put Detroit out in front 5-1. After putting together a decent June, Happ is off to a shaky start in July, though he'll have a chance to turn it around in his next scheduled start Saturday against the Yankees. He sits with a 4.03 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 110:28 K:BB over 102.2 innings this season.
Happ (10-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts through six innings in a win Monday over the Astros. Happ has now won six straight decisions, but the Astros are by far the best opponent he has beaten in this stretch. He was able to record a quality start despite pitching to contact all night, as the Astros swung and missed just five times, but were unable to connect with much force outside of an Alex Bregman home run in the third inning. Happ was playing with fire, as he recorded nine flyball outs, but the only other extra-base hit the Astros mustered was a Jose Altuve double. Happ will look to stay hot in his next start Sunday against the Tigers.
Happ (9-3) picked up the win Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 5-4 victory over the Braves, giving up four runs on six hits over 8.1 innings while striking out eight. The left-hander held Atlanta to two runs through eight innings, but he came back out for the ninth and ran out of gas, putting two runners aboard that Ryan Tepera allowed to score after Happ got the hook. He'll still take a 3.56 ERA into his next outing Monday in Houston.
