      Rangers' Lance Lynn: Quality streak ends despite win

      Lance Lynn (9-4) allowed five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six to pick up the win Saturday against the White Sox.Lynn's streak of eight straight quality starts ended when he allowed four first-inning runs, but the right-hander retired 18 of the last 20 batters faced with the help of several nice plays behind him to record his ninth win. Only two pitchers in the majors have more victories than Lynn: Jake Odorizzi and Lucas Giolito each have 10. Lynn looks to join the double-digit-win club his next time out Friday on the road against Tampa Bay. With an off day coming Monday, the Texas Rangers could move him up a day to Thursday against Detroit.

      Rangers' Lance Lynn: Fans eight in no-decision

      Lance Lynn gave up two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings in Friday's no-decision against the Athletics.Lynn got off to a shaky start by surrendering a run in the first inning, but he'd settle down and put up zeros in four of the next five frames to turn in a quality start. While he certainly pitched well enough to win, the Texas Rangers bullpen would give up the lead in the seventh inning. Regardless of the outcome, the 32-year-old right-hander has now delivered six consecutive quality starts and owns a 4.39 ERA with 85 strikeouts across 80 innings this season.

      Rangers' Lance Lynn: Wins seventh game

      Lance Lynn struck out seven and got the win over the Royals on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and zero walks over 6.1 innings.The veteran ran out of gas starting in the fifth. During the first four innings, no Royals baserunner reached scoring position, but then Kansas City had runners touch at least second base in the fifth, sixth and seventh against the right-hander. Still, Lynn only allowed runs in the fifth and continued to keep the ball in the park. Over his last four starts, Lynn has yielded zero home runs and struck out 33 over 26.1 innings. He is 7-4 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 74 innings this season. Lynn is expected to face the Athletics in his next start Friday.

      Rangers' Lance Lynn: Fans season-high 11 in win

Whenever he takes the mound next, he'll carry a 4.67 ERA and 60:19 K:BB through 61.2 innings with him.

Lynn will take a 5.48 ERA and 44:17 K:BB through 47.2 innings into his next start Thursday in Kansas City.

      Rangers' Lance Lynn: Grabs fourth win

      Lance Lynn (4-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out three over six innings in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.This was not a strong performance from the right-hander, but the Texas Rangers' offense powered him to another win, his fourth in his last five turns. Lynn is doing a good job keeping the ball in the yard and his walk rate is down overall -- the ERA estimators suggest he deserves quite a bit better. That said, you need not look further back than April 23 for an example of the type of downside Lynn brings to the table (eight runs over 3.1 innings). Lynn gets the Astros in Houston next week.
