Danny Duffy (4-2) allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six across five 2/3 innings during Thursday’s 4-0 loss to Cleveland. He was tagged with his second loss of the season.
Duffy’s three earned runs during Thursday’s loss were the most he’s allowed in his first five starts combined. He threw 107 pitches, landing 73 strikes. Despite the subpar performance, the 32-year-old is second in the majors with a 1.26 ERA. The left-hander also owns a 1.07 WHIP and a 40:10 K: BB across 35 2/3 innings in 2021. Duffy will look for better results in next week’s start against the Tigers.
