Thornton allowed one hit and two walks while striking out five over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Friday.
This was an impressive outing from Thornton, who sat down the first 12 batters he faced, in Arlington no less. He only got eight swinging strikes on 102 pitches, but with only one earned run allowed in his last 12 innings, Thornton has done a good job righting the ship after a disastrous three-start stretch (13 earned runs, 20 hits in 12.2 innings). He will look to build on this performance next week at home against the Twins.
Thornton allowed one run on two hits and five walks while striking out seven over five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Athletics.
Thornton's lone run allowed came in the third inning on a double to left field, although he racked up a high pitch count by handing out five free passes. The 25-year-old fired 103 pitches (56 strikes) prior to his removal from the contest. Thornton had struggled in his past three outings entering the day, so although he wouldn't get credit for the win, it was good to see him get back on track. He owns a 5.08 ERA with a 33:12 K:BB over 28.1 innings this season.
Thornton (0-3) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday by allowing four runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out five and did not issue a walk.
Thornton gave up nine runs in 7.2 innings over his previous two starts, so getting through five innings Tuesday may be a small step in the right direction. The 25-year-old has a 5.79 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB across 23.1 innings thus far in his rookie campaign.
Thornton (0-2) gave up four runs on six hits with three walks while striking out three through 4.2 innings in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday.
Thornton allowed nine baserunners and surrendered four runs to get the loss Wednesday. After two solid starts with a combined 15 strikeouts to start the year, the 25-year-old has only struck out six in his last two outings. The right-hander has a 0-2 record with a 5.40 ERA through four starts this season. Thornton gets his next start Tuesday against the Giants.
Thornton (0-1) took the loss after surrendering five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over three innings Friday against the Rays.
Thornton gave up a solo homer in the first inning, following by four more runs in the third on a pair of long balls and a triple. The 25-year-old turned in his shortest start of the young campaign, as he was pulled after three frames with 70 pitches. Thornton will head into his next start with a 4.61 ERA and 18 punchouts across 13.2 innings.
