Berrios (12-8) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks across 3.1 innings while taking the loss Tuesday against the Yankees. He struck out four. Berrios held his own through the first three frames, but he ran his pitch count up while allowing two runs on two hits and a walk before his removal with one out in the fourth. He threw just eight first-pitch strikes to 19 batters and struggled to work from behind in the count. Berrios was coming off a pair of solid outings, with Tuesday representing the first time he didn't complete five innings in a start since early August. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Tigers.
Berrios gave up one run over 5.2 innings with five strikeouts and four walks, but got a no-decision in Thursday's win over Toronto. Berrios continued his strong home splits with a 2.45 ERA in 66 innings. He was set for the win before closer Matt Belisle gave up a tying home run in the ninth inning. The Twins eventually won in 10 innings.
Berrios pitched seven innings Saturday, giving up two runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out one, but he didn't factor into the decision during the Twins' 5-2 loss to the Royals. The right-hander in general has stumbled as the season has worn on, but this was a promising rebound effort, despite the paltry strikeout total. This knocked his ERA down to a serviceable 3.94, and Berrios still holds a worthy 8.5 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 130.1 innings. He's still worth starting Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Berrios (12-7) allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk despite seven strikeouts over five innings and took the loss Monday against Tampa Bay. Berrios's inconsistency remains maddening. Over his past six starts, he's allowed five, zero, five, zero, six and now five runs. Berrios has also struck out a ridiculous 34 batters over 24.1 innings in his past four starts. At his best, Berrios might be one of the best pitchers in the majors, but unfortunately, he hasn't fully harnessed it yet.
Berrios threw seven scoreless innings and tied his career high with 11 strikeouts to improve to 12-6 in Wednesday's win over the White Sox. He allowed just four hits, a walk and a hit batsman. Berrios bounced back impressively from his last start, a road loss to these same White Sox in a game that saw him give up five runs (three earned). He'd been scuffling a bit in general before this game, having turned in a a 6.10 ERA over a four-start span, but Berrios has been a far better pitcher at home this season -- he's now 8-1 with a 2.54 ERA at Target Field after once again taking advantage of starting in friendly territory.
