Turnbull (4-4) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings in Friday's loss to the Royals. Turnbull couldn't stop Adalberto Mondesi in particular, as the Royals shortstop was in the middle of all three runs against the righty. It's a tough end to a solid season for Turnbull, who finishes with a 3.97 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 51 strikeouts across 56.2 innings in 11 starts.
Turnbull struck out seven and gave up two runs on five hits over six innings in a 5-2 win over the Indians on Saturday. After having just two quality starts in his first eight outings, Turnbull has recorded two over his last three starts. He dropped his ERA to 3.83 with the performance and lines up to face the Royals on Friday.
Turnbull (4-3) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against the White Sox. Most of the damage against Turnbull came during a White Sox three-run fifth inning, but prior to that, the 27-year-old righty coughed up a solo shot to Eloy Jimenez in the fourth. After the disappointing outing, Turnbull owns a 3.94 ERA and 39:27 K:BB across 45.2 innings. Turnbull will look to get back in the win column Saturday at home against Cleveland.
Turnbull (4-2) earned the win over Milwaukee on Tuesday, pitching six scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and three walks while striking out three. Turnbull struggled with his control again Tuesday -- he has now allowed at least three walks in five straight games -- but was able to keep the Brewers off the scoreboard by limiting them to three hits. The right-hander exited after six innings having thrown 88 pitches (53 strikes). Aside from issuing too many free passes, Turnbull has been mostly effective this season, posting a 3.32 ERA and limiting opponents to 28 hits over 40.2 innings. He'll seek his fifth win on the road against the White Sox on Sunday.
Turnbull allowed five runs on three hits and five walks across 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Brewers Wednesday. He struck out five. The season-high five walks really worked against Turnbull. The righty's pitch count quickly climbed to 89 before getting the hook, and he was constantly dealing with clogged basepaths. Free passes have been an issue all season for Turnbull, as he now has 23 in just 34.2 innings pitched. The 27-year-old still has a respectable 3.89 ERA, but that number will likely climb quickly if he can't display better command moving forward. Turnbull lines up to face Milwaukee again in his next scheduled start Tuesday.
