Romano (5-8) got the win Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits while striking out six without a walk over five innings against the White Sox.
Romano yielded a pair of home runs that put Cincinnati behind by three early, but his offense eventually picked him up to put him back in line for the win. The 24-year-old has worked to an improved 3.60 ERA over his last five outings, but going deep into games continues to be a struggle; he's completed six innings only four times in 18 starts. He'll take a 5.40 ERA and 73:38 K:BB through 95 innings into Tuesday's start in Cleveland.
Romano (4-8) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts through five innings in a loss Friday to the Brewers.
Romano's did well against everybody but Keon Broxton, who drove home both runs against him with a single in the second and a solo home run in the fourth. The home run was the only extra-base hit Romano allowed, and he induced a strong 14 swinging strikes on 84 pitches. Romano has been better of late as he owns a 2.52 ERA with 19 strikeouts against eight walks through his last four starts (25 innings). He'll try and keep that form in his next start Wednesday against Chicago.
Romano gave up five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six in five innings Sunday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.
This was a rough outing for Romano, but the Reds' bats came alive in final five innings, so he was not stuck with the loss. His ERA on the season now sits at 5.40, and it wouldn't be surprising if he lost his spot in the rotation at some point this summer. Look for him to get another start next weekend at home against the Brewers.
Romano (4-7) tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday to earn a win against the Tigers, striking out six while allowing four hits and four strikeouts.
Romano was in the strike zone at an impressive 69 percent clip, inducing 17 swinging strikes while recording eight groundball outs. He walked multiple batters for the first time in four starts, but he still allowed just three men to reach second base on the evening. Romano underwent a nightmarish stretch from mid-May into the beginning of June, but he 's since allowed just one earned run across 15 strong innings in his last two starts. He'll look to continue his recent success Sunday against the Cubs.
Romano allowed one run on four hits in eight innings Tuesday against the Royals, striking out two and walking one in a no-decision.
Romano's sole run allowed was a home run by Hunter Dozier in the fifth inning. He was otherwise very effective, allowing no other extra-base hits and throwing 68 of 106 pitches for strikes. Romano's last five outings had been rough, as he'd allowed 27 combined runs across 22.2 innings of work, spiking his ERA to 6.23 on the year. Tuesday's performance was an encouraging sign, and he'll take it into his next start against the Tigers at home.
