Clevinger (7-4) allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks across six innings to take the loss Monday against the Reds. He struck out 11.
Clevinger induced a whopping 20 swinging strikes in this one, but he also allowed a steady procession of baserunners and was scored upon in four different innings. While it's a disappointing start by his recent standards, Clevinger's propensity to miss bats and battle relatively deep into games continues to provide fantasy dividends. He hadn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his previous five starts and will look to get back on track this weekend against the Yankees.
Clevinger will start Monday against the Reds, Joe Noga of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The Indians are going with Corey Kluber and Shane Bieber on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, meaning those with Clevinger active in weekly leagues will go with a zero this lineup period. Clevinger last pitched July 1, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings in a win over the A's. Manager Terry Francona did not give a reason for shuffling his rotation order. "As we go, I'll explain, but I can't really do it ahead of time," Francona said. "It'll become more obvious as we go."
Clevinger got a ton of run support in this contest, but he still held up his end of the bargain with a quality start to pick up his seventh win of 2018. The right-hander is having a terrific season, with a 3.11 ERA and 99 strikeouts through 110 innings. He'll take on Oakland again in his next start, this time at home on July 7.
Clevinger (6-3) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts through five innings and took the loss Monday against the Cardinals.
Clevinger wasn't at his sharpest, as he was touched up for a pair of doubles by Matt Carpenter and Marcell Ozuna, induced only six swinging strikes, and needed 98 pitches to get through just five frames. That said, if a start in which Clevinger allows just two runs to a solid Cardinals lineup is one of his sloppier starts of the year, you know he has been on his game. Clvinger has thrown four quality starts in his last six outings and will look to get back to that form Sunday against Oakland.
Clevinger (6-2) tossed seven one-run innings to earn the win Tuesday against the White Sox, striking out 10 while allowing five hits and two walks.
Clevinger's stuff was electric in this one as he threw 68 percent of his pitches for strikes, including first-pitch strikes to 22 of 31 batters faced. He was touched up for a run in the first inning but quickly rounded into form and cruised into the eighth inning before an elevated pitch count led to his removal. That's back-to-back outstanding efforts from Clevinger against the White Sox in which he's struck out 21 while walking three over 14.2 total innings. He'll face another favorable matchup this weekend against the Tigers.
