Chicago White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn (7-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking six across four innings, taking the loss Saturday to the Astros.
Lynn, who had been excellent all season, had his worst and shortest start of the year. He allowed six runs (five earned) over four innings in Saturday’s loss. The 34-year-old struck out eight hitters and racked up his 1,500 career punchout on Saturday. He owns a 2.02 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and an 86:21 K: BB across 75 2/3 innings in 2021. Lynn will look for better results in a much favorable matchup against the Mariners next week.
