Michael Lorenzen (2-1) allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out six across five innings in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Pirates. He picked up his second win of the season.
Lorenzen made a spot start with Sonny Gray (back) placed on the injured list. He threw a total of 76 pitches, landing 49 for strikes. It was his first start since 2018. Lorenzen owns a 4.56 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 23:14 K:BB over 25 2/3 innings. The right-hander will likely head back to the bullpen.
