Clevinger (3-2) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Astros.
Clevinger was able to scatter five hits and two walks through his first four innings of work without allowing a run, but surrendered a three-run home run in the fifth inning before being pulled in the sixth inning after allowing two of the first three batters he faced to reach base. He will be happy to get a start against a team other than the Astros in his next outing, as he allowed eight earned runs in 11.2 innings with 15 hits and seven walks in his two consecutive starts against them. His overall numbers remain strong -- he has a 3.32 ERA and 1.22 WHIP -- so there's no reason to panic about his results against one of the more dangerous lineups in the league.
Clevinger (3-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and four walks with six strikeouts over 6.1 innings in a loss Friday to the Astros.
Despite the loss, Clevinger delivered his fourth straight quality start, a testament to the 26-year-old's endurance and ability to show hitters different looks as he faces them multiple times. Astros hitters were able to get to his fastball, though, as Clevinger surrendered six hits on 10 fastballs put in play. His off-speed pitches were still nasty, as his changeup, slider and curveball combined to induce 10 swinging strikes on 51 offerings, but Houston was able to get to Clevinger early enough to put him in the loss column for the first time all year. He'll get a chance for revenge in his next start when the Astros come to Cleveland on Thursday.
Clevinger (3-0) picked up the win Saturday against the Royals, allowing two runs on eight hits and zero walks across 7.2 innings. He struck out five.
Clevinger continued his strong start to the season Saturday, pitching into the eighth inning for a second straight start while recording his fourth quality start in his past five outings. While he allowed eight hits, the 27-year-old was able to limit the damage to only a pair of runs. Clevinger now owns a shiny 2.70 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 44:14 K:BB through eight starts (53.1 innings) this season. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next outing, which will be a tough matchup on the road against the Astros.
The right-hander continued his strong start to the season with his first double-digit strikeout effort of the year against a tough Yankees lineup, but he didn't factor into the decision as Cody Allen and Dan Otero combined to give up five earned runs in relief. Still, Clevinger has a 2.76 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and 39 strikeouts across 45.2 innings, so it looks like he's building off his solid showing last season when he had a 3.11 ERA in 121.2 innings. He'll take the mound next at home against the Royals next Sunday.
Clevinger (2-0) did not factor into the decision during Tuesday's loss to the Rangers. He allowed three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over 6.2 innings.
Clevinger was able to work around three hits and a walk in the first four innings to keep the Rangers off the scoreboard but struggled in the fifth inning, allowing a home run to Delino DeShields followed by back-to-back doubles from Shin-Soo Choo and Jurickson Profar. The 27-year-old has allowed seven total runs in his last two starts but still owns an impressive 2.82 ERA. Things won't get easier for Clevinger in his next start, as he travels to New York to take on the Yankees on Sunday.
