Limited Kevin Minter Jersey Severino picked up his fourth win of the season Tuesday against the Orioles, after he tossed 6 1/3 innings, allowing just one run on seven hits, while striking out eight and walking just one. The one run was scored in the sixth inning on a bases-loaded nibbler to short which broke up a 17 2/3 innings scoreless streak. In 61 1/3 innings of work this season for the Bronx Bombers, he owns a 4-2 record and a 2.93 ERA, along with a 10.13 K/9, 3.05 FIP and an xFIP of 2.83.
His stuff is elite, teammate Matt Holliday told the New York Post after the victory over the O’s.
Limited Tim Horton Jersey On the mound, Severino’s really seen his slider and changeup develop, leading him to trust them more and throw them more. His dazzling fastball that tops at 100 and averages out at 96.1, according to PITCHf/x, hasn’t looked straight like last year, and he’s had more control of it. He’s been throwing his fastball and offspeed pretty evenly, throwing his fastball 51.5 percent of the time and his slider and changeup a combined 48.5 percent of the time (slider is 36.6 percent, changeup is 11.9 percent).
The Brewers bullpen: With a 2-1 run lead entering the ninth inning, it appeared Milwaukee was going to end its four-game losing streak. However, closer Corey Knebel offered up a solo home run to Chris Iannetta to ultimately force extra innings.
Wily Peralta promptly served up two more runs in the 10th inning to hand the Brewers their fifth straight loss.
