Perez didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-innings win over the White Sox, giving up three runs on 10 hits over 4.2 innings while striking out four. The lefty got the hook after throwing 64 pitches (45 strikes), but Perez actually did a reasonable job of avoiding hard contact -- only one of the 10 hits by Chicago went for extra bases, and none left the yard. He'll carry a 4.92 ERA and 129:64 K:BB through 157.1 innings into his next outing Sunday, at home against the Royals.
Perez (10-7) took the loss Wednesday against the Nationals after allowing five runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out four and walked three.

Perez was blown up for seven earned over 2.2 innings in his last outing against the Tigers, but he bounced back with a quality start in this contest that allowed him to nab his 10th win of the season. It's still been an erratic campaign overall for the 28-year-old, as he's got a 4.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 147.2 innings. He lines up to take on the Nationals in his next start in a Wednesday home matchup.
Perez (9-6) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts across just 2.2 innings while taking the loss against the Tigers on Saturday.

This is the second time in the last five starts that Perez yielded seven earned runs in a start. Fortunately, he rebounded well after his last seven-run outing, but Perez will have to do it again to get his ERA back below 4.50. Perez owns a 4.89 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 120 strikeouts in 141.2 innings this season.
