Frankie Montas strikes out eight in loss to RoyalsJune 10, 2021 | 09:27 PM
Frankie Montas recorded eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings on Thursday in a loss to the Royals.
Analysis: Montas carried a shutout into the seventh inning before giving up a game-tying RBI double to Hunter Dozier and a go-ahead two-run single to Kelvin Gutierrez. The hard-throwing 28-year-old righty has been hot-and-cold over the first 10 weeks of the 2021 campaign, mixing dominant high-strikeout stretches with occasional homer-prone implosions. He'll carry a 4.37 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 73/18 K/BB ratio across 70 innings (13 starts) into a home outing against the Angels on Tuesday.
