Kansas City Royals pitcher Kris Bubic (2-4) allowed five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings during Thursday’s 15-1 loss to the Red Sox. He was tagged with his fourth loss of the season.
Bubic drew the start on Thursday after coming out of the bullpen over his last few outings. He was roughed up by the Red Sox and served up three homers during Thursday’s loss. The southpaw threw 71 pitches, landing 40 for strikes. He owns a 4.99 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, and a 44:27 K: BB across 52 1/3 innings in 2021. It’s unclear if Bubic will stick in the rotation after posting a 9.53 ERA over his last seven games.
