Lynn allowed three runs on four hits and five walks over five frames Sunday, striking out three batters in the loss to the Twins. He did not factor in the decision. Minnesota tagged Lynn with two runs in the first inning on a Marwin Gonzalez double. The 32-year-old has given up just six runs over 24 innings in August, lowering his ERA from 3.83 to 3.60 in the process. However, he's also issued 13 walks during that span. He'll look to get back in the win column in Chicago on Thursday against the White Sox.
Lynn (14-8) allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Blue Jays. Lynn's lone blemish came on a solo home run by Randal Grichuk in the second inning. Otherwise, his only trouble came in the fourth frame when he loaded the bases with one out, but forced a pop out and line out to close the inning. Though Lynn has now lost back-to-back starts, he's surrendered only two earned runs across 12 innings while striking out 14. For the season, he maintains a solid 3.54 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. He'll look to turn in another strong start in his next outing, currently scheduled for Sunday against Minnesota.

Lynn (13-6) picked up the win Friday after holding the A's to two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings. The right-hander worked himself out of a jam in the first inning after two straight errors by Danny Santana allowed both Marcus Semien and Matt Chapman to reach base. Lynn then walked Matt Olson to load the bases, but fanned Matt Canha for the first out, and the only damage in the inning came via a sacrifice fly by Ramon Laureano. The final blemish on Lynn's line came from an RBI single by Canha in the third. With the win, he evened his season record against Oakland (1-1) while snapping a two-game losing streak. Lynn has pitched at least six innings in 17 straight starts, tied for third longest in franchise history. The 32-year-old will carry a 3.83 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 160:33 K:BB into a matchup against the Tigers next Friday.
