Bassitt (11-3) earned the win over the Angels on Friday, pitching seven scoreless innings and allowing six hits and one walk while striking out seven. The right-hander faced little resistance from an Angels offense that managed only one extra-base hit against him. Bassitt threw 63 of 95 pitches for strikes and lowered his ERA to 3.28 with the strong effort. He has tossed exactly seven innings in five of his past seven appearances, though he also has two clunkers in the span. Bassitt's next outing is likely to come at home against Texas next weekend.
Bassitt got a no-decision in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Seattle, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts in five innings. Bassitt's nemesis in the game was Mitch Haniger, who doubled and scored in the first and homered in the third and fifth to play a role in all four runs charged to the Oakland starter. The four runs allowed ties a season high as the first time All-Star looks to rebound against the Angels next weekend.
Bassitt (10-3) allowed three earned runs on six hits while striking out eight across seven innings, taking the loss to Cleveland on Sunday. Bassitt surrendered a first inning homer to Bradley Zimmer and another one in the seventh to Daniel Johnson to lose the game. Despite the loss, it was his fourth quality start in his last five appearances. The 32-year-old has a 3.31 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP, leading the Athletics with 10 wins. His 125 innings pitched are second-most in all of baseball, trailing Zack Wheeler's 125.2. His next start is scheduled for Saturday in Seattle.
Bassitt is no longer starting Friday against Cleveland, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The A's will send Sean Manaea to the mound Friday and follow him with Frankie Montas on Saturday. The shuffle could be due to Bassitt throwing 24 pitches in Tuesday's All-Star Game, though the club has yet to comment on the change. Per Martin Gallegos of MLB.com, manager Bob Melvin said that Bassitt has an "excellent chance" of starting Sunday's series finale.
Bassitt (10-2) earned the win Sunday over the Rangers after allowing just one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three over seven innings. Bassitt was in a nice groove Sunday, only letting one batter reach scoring position over seven innings of work. The one time the Rangers got to him was in the fifth, when David Dahl led off the inning with a single and eventually scored from first on a double to deep right center by Nick Solak. It was an excellent bounce-back performance after the 32-year-old right-hander was pummeled for six runs in his last outing. Bassitt hasn't lost since April 6 and is tied for second heading into the All-Star break with 10 wins. He owns a 3.28 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 118:29 K:BB over 118 innings.
