J.B. Wendelken gives up four runs, takes the loss on Monday

J.B. Wendelken blew a save and took the loss on Monday in Game 1 of the ALDS as he allowed four runs, none earned, on three hits with one strikeout over 2/3 of an inning in the A's 10-5 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Wendelken entered in the sixth inning to protect a 5-3 lead. He got two quick outs before a Marcus Semien error, a mishandled grounder, allowed Josh Reddick to reach base. It all fell apart after that as the Astros recorded three straight hits to take the lead. Officially, Wendelken didn't allow a run as none of them were technically earned but he was still saddled with the blown save and the loss.

J.B. Wendelken gets the win

J.B. Wendelken pitched three innings, had one strikeout and allowed one unearned run while picking up the W during the A's 13-inning victory on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

This was the first time Wendelken has thrown for more than one inning this season and he was rewarded with his first win of the year. On the season, he has recorded six strikeouts in five games, boasting an ERA of 0.00 and a WHIP of 1.000. While the reliever's low usage rate offers little to no fantasy value, an outing like Friday night's could give manager Bob Melvin more trust in him, which is something to keep an eye on down the road.
