1. Mike Clevinger Tosses Another Gem
Clevinger has been on a roll over his last seven starts, striking out 35 batters over 32 innings, allowing only five earned runs in that stretch. Tuesday was another installment of Clevinger at his best, as he worked six innings and San Francisco’s only run off the 26-year-old was unearned, as Eduardo Nunez reached second on an error by Brandon Guyer and Buster Posey drove him in with an RBI single in the sixth.
Clevinger finished with seven strikeouts, two walks and only three hits allowed, receiving a no-decision.
It was a disappointing outcome for such a great outing, something Corey Kluber can certainly relate to recently.
