Berrios did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out six over 6.1 innings against the Red Sox. Berrios was taken deep with two outs in the sixth inning by Rafael Devers, but aside from that mistake he shut down a potent Boston lineup all night. The 24-year-old wasn't at his sharpest -- the three walks matched a season high and he also threw a wild pitch and hit a batter -- but he managed to work his way through it without his best stuff to earn his third straight quality start and sixth in seven tries. He'll take a 3.38 ERA into Sunday's home date against the Rangers.
Berrios did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing one run on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over six innings in the loss to the Tigers. Niko Goodrum took Berrios deep for a solo jack in the second inning, but the 24-year-old was otherwise sharp in this one and left in line for his eighth win. It's been a bit of an up-and-down season for the righty, but he seems to have found his form again of late with five quality starts in his last six outings. Berrios will take a 3.51 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and an impressive 91:15 K:BB across 89.2 innings into a difficult home tilt Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Berrios (7-5) twirled a complete game, allowing just two earned runs, six hits and no walks while striking out 10 in a 7-2 win over the White Sox on Thursday. Berrios displayed some major control issues in his first two years at the MLB level, but he's turned it around so far in 2018, logging a 84:14 K:BB in 83.2 innings this season. The 24-year-old righty lowered his season ERA to a respectable 3.66. Berrios will look to build momentum next week in Detroit.
Berrios (6-5) picked up the win in Friday's 7-4 victory over Cleveland, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out seven. The right-hander struck out at least seven batters for the fourth straight start, throwing 69 of 99 pitches for strikes as he pounded the zone after being staked to an early 4-0 lead. Berrios will take a 3.86 ERA and brilliant 74:14 K:BB through 74.2 innings into his next outing Thursday at home against the White Sox.
Berrios (5-5) got the loss against the Mariners on Sunday, giving up two runs on eight hits over 7.1 innings, striking out eight and walking one as the Twins eventually fell 3-1. It was a strong outing for Berrios, who was unlucky to get tagged with the loss as his offense could only muster one run of support off Seattle starter Mike Leake. He's on a great roll right now, as he's given up just five earned runs with a brilliant 27:4 K:BB over his last 22.2 innings to bring his ERA down to 3.67 on the season. Perhaps most impressively, he's also boasting a pristine 0.95 WHIP through 68.2 innings.
