Triggs (1-0) gave up six runs on five hits and two walks and did not record a strikeout in 1.1 innings. He did not factor into the decision of Wednesday's win over the White Sox.
Triggs got absolutely shelled Wednesday and left the game trailing 6-1, but his offense picked him up as the A's emerged with a 12-11 victory in 14 innings. The righty threw first-pitch strikes to nine of the 12 batters he faced, but he lost the plate after that point as he ended up throwing nearly as many balls as strikes (22 and 23, respectively). The 29-year-old hadn't allowed more than two runs in any of his first three starts, so he'll look to regain that form when he next takes the hill Tuesday against the Rangers.
Triggs (1-0) struck out four and allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday.
The right-hander was briefly in line for the win when the A's took a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth inning, but their bullpen melted down in the seventh. Triggs threw 61 of 93 pitches for strikes, and he'll carry a sharp 2.87 ERA into his next outing, Wednesday at home against the White Sox.
Triggs (1-0) tallied his first win of the season after allowing two runs on four hits and two walks in 5.2 frames. He struck out six.
Triggs faced relatively little resistance all evening, as only Justin Upton's two-run homer blemished his pitching line. The right-hander did require 96 pitches to navigate his night, but he limited the damage and forced the Angels to hit the ball on the ground much of the time (7:1 groundball:flyball). The 29-year-old now holds a 2.53 ERA and a 13:4 K:BB in two starts, figures he'll look to improve further in his next start against Seattle on Friday.
Triggs allowed one run on four hits and two walks across five innings en route to a no-decision Monday against the Rangers. He struck out seven.
Triggs limited baserunners to great effect for much of the night and was only scored upon as the Rangers strung a couple of base hits together in the fifth inning. He also had his strikeout pitch working, recording 13 swinging strikes as he tied his second best strikeout total at the MLB level. Triggs has been nothing to write home about over his first two seasons with the A's, but his 2018 campaign is off to a strong start heading into Saturday's outing against the Angels.
Triggs (2-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits over 5.1 innings in Thursday's 4-2 Cactus League loss to the Rockies. He struck out three.
The main blemish on an otherwise solid effort was the pair of solo round trippers that Triggs surrendered to Charlie Blackmon and Chris Iannetta in the first and fifth innings, respectively. The right-hander was largely effective otherwise against a Rockies lineup loaded with regulars, and he was able to log a spring-high amount of innings in anticipation of his role as the projected No. 4 starter.
