Bradford fired two scoreless innings in a win over the Rangers on Thursday, allowing two hits and recording a strikeout.
The 28-year-old right-hander closed out May with yet another impressive effort, his sixth straight scoreless appearance. Bradford continues to serve as a versatile relief option, with his ability to handle multiple innings as necessary rendering him especially valuable. Thursday's effort coaxed his season ERA under 2.00 as well, and he now sports an impressive 20:5 K:BB across 22.2 innings.
Bradford (4-0) fired a scoreless 12th inning in an extra-innings win over the Twins on Saturday, recording a strikeout.
Bradford served as the sixth reliever on the night for the Mariners in the marathon battle, and he got through his one frame on an efficient 13 pitches. He then was awarded his fourth victory of the season when Mike Zunino launched a game-winning solo blast in the home half of the 12th. Bradford has posted five scoreless efforts in his last six appearances, and both his 2.37 ERA and 0.95 WHIP are significant improvements over his respective 3.25 and 1.16 career figures.
Bradford fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Athletics on Thursday, retiring both hitters on strikeouts.
Bradford impressively disposed of the hot-hitting duo of Marcus Semien and Jed Lowrie on swinging third strikes to close out the eighth. The 28-year-old had last pitched a week prior, his longest such stretch between outings in May. Bradford has been one of manager Scott Servais' more versatile bullpen options in terms of workload, as he's proven adept at working both multi-inning and much shorter one-or-two-batter stints as needed. Factoring in Thursday's outing, he sports an impressive 2.50 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 18.0 innings across 15 appearances.
Bradford (3-0) allowed an earned run on a solo home run over 2.1 innings in a win over the Athletics on Thursday. He also recorded two strikeouts.
Bradford had one slip-up -- the 443-foot solo blast he allowed to Stephen Piscotty -- but he was otherwise effective while getting seven outs on 32 pitches. The 28-year-old right-hander has been a revelation out of the bullpen thus far in 2018, as he's generated an impressive 2.08 ERA and 0.85 WHIP over 13.0 innings across eight appearances.
Bradford (2-0) allowed an earned run on two hits over two innings in a win over the Rangers on Saturday. He also recorded a strikeout.
Bradford continues to be an early-season pleasant surprise for manager Scott Servais with the versatility he offers out of the bullpen. The 28-year-old has worked more than one inning in three of six appearances, and although he's pitched to some contact, he's limited the damage to two earned runs over 9.2 innings. Bradford's ERA remains a sparkling 1.86 despite the earned run he allowed Saturday, and he's displayed sharp control thus far by issuing just two walks over his six outings.
