Boyd (7-10) pitched six innings of one-run ball to record the win Sunday against the Twins. He allowed just two hits and a walk, while striking out three.
The only damage against Boyd came on a sac fly in the second inning. Outside of that, the lefty was on cruise control, working through his six innings on just 88 pitches. Boyd has now allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five outings, lowering his season ERA to 4.20 in the process. He lines up to face the Twins again in his next start, which is scheduled for Friday.
Boyd (6-10) allowed four runs on six hits -- including two home runs -- over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Angels on Monday. He struck out four and walked one.
This was a step back for Boyd after a great run coming out of the break in which he allowed just three runs while posting a 20:3 K:BB over 19 innings (three starts). He gave up three extra-base hits, including homers to two power-deficient players in Andrelton Simmons and Eric Young Jr. While Boyd is on the radar in mixed leagues given his recent success, he's still a dice roll from start to start. The 27-year-old lines up to face the Twins at home this weekend.
Boyd (6-9) pitched eight scoreless innings to record the win Tuesday against the Reds. He allowed four hits and a walk while striking out seven.
Boyd was locked in and delivered his best all-around outing of the season. The eight innings represent a new season high for the lefty, and this was just the second time that he hasn't allowed a run in a start, with the other being a five-inning performance against the Angels on May 28. Boyd has now strung together three straight solid starts, allowing just three earned runs over 19 innings during the stretch. He'll take a 4.22 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled for Sunday in Oakland.
Boyd (5-9) allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out seven over six innings in a win over the Royals on Wednesday. He did not walk a batter.
Five of the seven hits against Boyd were singles (one bunt single), and he induced 14 swinging strikes on 95 pitches. He struggled mightily going into the break, posting a 9.78 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in his final five starts of the first half, but the extra rest seems to have done Boyd well (three runs, 13:2 K:BB over 11 innings since play resumed). The 27-year-old is still far from trustworthy, but he's trending in the right direction. Up next: a home start against the Reds.
Boyd (4-9) allowed just a single run over five innings but was saddled with the loss Friday against the Red Sox. He gave up three hits and two walks, while striking out six.
Boyd was good, but Boston starter David Price was better, keeping Detroit off the board for six innings. Three Red Sox relievers then combined to complete the shutout. The 27-year-old lefty had been struggling lately, and he still has a mediocre 4.62 ERA, but this was a nice start to the second half. Boyd will look to build on this in his next outing, which is scheduled for Wednesday in Kansas City in what projects to be a favorable matchup.
