Chirinos (8-4) allowed two runs on four hits with no walks and eight strikeouts across seven innings while earning a victory over the Orioles on Friday.
The Rays provided Chirinos with plenty of run support, so all he really had to do was last five innings, but the 25-year-old turned in his best outing since June 7. Before Friday, that was the last time Chirinos captured a win, but he's still been pitching well. Despite just a 2-2 record, he owns a 2.93 ERA in his last seven outings. Overall, he has a 3.11 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 107 innings this season. Chirinos will pitch next at the Yankees on Tuesday.
Chirinos didn't factor into the decision against the Yankees on Thursday, giving up three earned runs on five hits over seven innings, striking out five and walking one in the Rays' 8-4 extra-inning defeat.
The right-hander continued his strong first half of the season with a sixth straight quality start, needing 101 pitches to make it through seven frames against a tough Yankees lineup. Through 100 innings, Chirinos has emerged as a key component of Tampa Bay's staff, as he's now boasting a 3.15 ERA, an impressive 0.99 WHIP and an 81:22 K:BB.
Chirinos will make his next start Thursday in the series opener against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Chirinos would have originally lined up for a Wednesday turn against the Orioles based on his usual amount of rest, but Toribio reports the Rays plan to go with a bullpen day for that contest instead. That will position the right-hander to kick off the four-game set against the Yankees, a team he's been very effective against on three previous occasions this season. Chirinos managed a quality start in his most recent turn versus the Bronx Bombers on June 17, and he owns a solid 3.07 ERA across 14.2 frames versus New York this season overall.
Chirinos (7-4) took the loss in Friday's 5-0 defeat at the hands of the Rangers, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and four walks over six innings while striking out five.
While it was technically a quality start, it was far from a sharp one. The error that led to the unearned run was Chirinos' own, and he threw only 59 of 105 pitches for strikes en route to a season-high four free passes -- he hadn't walked more than two batters in any prior outing. The right-hander will carry a 3.10 ERA and 76:21 K:BB through 93 innings into his next appearance Wednesday, at home against the Orioles.
Chirinos will start Friday against the Rays, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Chirinos (7-3) took the loss Monday as the Rays fell 3-0 to the Yankees, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six.
The 25-year-old delivered his second straight quality start, but with Masahiro Tanaka firing a shutout for the Yankees, that simply wasn't good enough. Chirinos will take a 3.00 ERA and 68:15 K:BB over 81 innings into his next outing Saturday in Oakland.
Chirinos recorded seven strikeouts and allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk across six innings during a no-decision against the Athletics on Wednesday.

The right-hander still has a fine 3.25 ERA and 0.95 WHIP to go along with a 49:11 K:BB. He lines up for a tough matchup against the Red Sox in in Fenway Park on Friday.

Despite his dominance, Tampa manager Kevin Cash lifted Chirinos and turned to his bullpen as per usual after the right-hander had thrown 69 pitches (45 strikes), and Oliver Drake gave up a single to Luke Maile on the first pitch he threw in the seventh inning to break up the potential combined no-hitter.
