Berrios had to settle for a no-decision against the Royals on Friday. He allowed two earned runs, five hits and three walks over six innings while striking out nine.
Berrios ran into trouble in the first three innings, but he was able to limit the damage and allowed only a single run in each of the first two frames before completely shutting down the Royals' offense from the fourth to the sixth. He was in line for the victory, but the Twins' bullpen allowed five runs in the ninth inning to spoil the quality start. Overall, Berrios has struggled with consistency this season, but he does have 185 strikeouts over 179.2 innings with a 3.81 ERA in 2018. He'll look to stay on track in his next start, which is scheduled for Friday against the Athletics.
Berrios (11-10) allowed five earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out six across four innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rangers.
Berrios struggled with his control and the longball on Sunday, with all three of the hits he allowed going for home runs. Homers have become a concern for him of late, as he has now allowed seven in his last 21.2 innings pitched spanning five starts. While his overall numbers still look respectable, Berrios has a 4.71 ERA across 40.1 post All-Star break innings.
Berrios (11-9) allowed three runs on eight hits with no walks across five innings Sunday while taking the loss against the Athletics. He struck out four.
Berrios settled in after allowing a solo home run in the first inning, but he encountered a bit of trouble again in the fifth when he allowed two runs on three straight hits to begin the frame. He escaped with no further damage done but was lifted prior to the sixth because of an elevated pitch count. Berrios appeared to be turning a corner through the early part of August, but he's failed to go deeper than five innings in any of his last four starts while posting a 5.61 ERA during that span. Things won't get any easier as he faces a resurgent Rangers lineup on the road in his next scheduled start.
Berrios allowed one run on four hits in a no-decision against the White Sox on Tuesday, striking out four and walking two in five innings.
The only real blemish on the night for Berrios was a solo home run allowed to Nicky Delmonico in the second inning. He allowed no other extra-base hits and threw 55 of 81 pitches for strikes. Berrios has thrown 14 quality starts in 26 games started this year and sports a 3.69 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP to go along with a .224 batting average against. The 24-year-old's 161 strikeouts are tied for ninth among AL starters, and he'll look to get back in the win column in his next start against the A's at home.
Berrios didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Pirates after allowing four runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks across 3.2 innings. He struck out four.
Berrios didn't have it in this one, turning in his shortest outing since April 29 while failing to make it out of the fourth inning for just the second time all year. While the 24-year-old owns a solid 3.75 ERA and 157:44 K:BB through 25 starts this season (153.2 innings), he's starting to show signs of fatigue lately, lasting fewer than five innings in three of his previous four starts while posting a 5.59 ERA and 21:14 K:BB over that stretch. It should be noted that Berrios has already surpassed his major-league innings total from 2017, though he's still 30 innings away from his combined (majors and minors) innings total from last year. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, which will come at home against the White Sox.
