Darwinzon Hernandez surrenders four runs, earns loss vs. Royals

by Andersen Pickard | Fri, Aug 5th 12:09am EDT

Red Sox reliever Darwinzon Hernandez allowed four runs, four hits, and two walks against the Royals on Thursday. Most of the damage came on a Salvador Perez three-run homer. He struck out just one batter over two innings and was charged with the loss as Boston ultimately fell to Kansas City by a score of 7-3.

Fantasy Impact:

The loss appears next to Hernandez's name, though it's fair to view Alex Cora's mismanagement of the bullpen as the reason why Boston lost. Hernandez was promoted to the majors in July and allowed five earned runs through just 3 2/3 innings during the course of the month. Thursday's rough outing further increased his ERA to 14.29 on the year.
