Pomeranz tossed 6.1 scoreless innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing five hits with two walks and five strikeouts. Pomeranz was sharp in this one, allowing just three men past first base as he lowered his ERA to a superb 3.15. Unfortunately, Kevin Gausman tossed a gem on the other side, so the left-hander wasn't in line for a win despite his third quality start in the last four turns. Pomeranz is in strong form down the stretch and will look to keep it going Monday against the Blue Jays.
Pomeranz (16-5) held Oakland to one run on five hits with three walks and five strikeouts over six innings to grab the win Thursday. Pomeranz came in with a 42.5 percent groundball rate, but failed to generate a single out on the ground until the sixth inning after getting leadoff man Marcus Semien in that fashion to begin the game. He benefited from a pair of Andrew Benintendi outfield assists, both of which ended innings in which Oakland had a runner in scoring position. The patient Athletics lineup made the lefty work hard for his outs, pushing him to 111 pitches despite mustering only one extra-base hit. Pomeranz will look to add to his career-high win total Tuesday in Baltimore.
Pomeranz (15-5) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out seven across six innings to earn the victory Friday against the Rays. Pomeranz held the Rays scoreless through four innings, and by that time he already had a 8-0 lead, as he easily coasted to his 15th victory of the season. This is the first time in five outings that he's posted a quality start, but he's still been a major fantasy factor for the entire campaign. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Athletics.
Pomeranz (14-5) allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five batters through 5.1 innings during Saturday's loss to the Yankees. The lefty allowed a solo home run to Chase Headley and a three-run shot to Matt Holliday, as the only runs New York scored were via the long ball. This was the first time Pomeranz allowed multiple home runs in a start since May 9, though, so it's likely best to view Saturday's underwhelming outing as a blip on the radar. After all, Pomeranz sports a rock-solid 3.36 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9.4 K/9 for the campaign. He lines up to face the Rays at Fenway Park in his next start.
Pomeranz (14-4) allowed three runs on seven hits and five walks with four strikeouts over seven innings to earn the victory Monday against Toronto. Pomeranz was wild once again, as he's now walked at least four batters in consecutive games; he's issued five bases on balls on three occasions this season. However, he was able to use a pair of double plays to avoid huge innings, and as such, Pomeranz was able to extend his streak of allowing three runs or fewer to nine starts, a stretch in which he owns a clean 5-0 record.
