|J.A. Happ wins for first time in seven starts |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/31/14) Blue Jays starting pitcher J.A. Happ won for the first time in seven starts during a 4-3 victory Sunday against the Yankees. The left-hander allowed three runs on nine hits and no walks, while striking out six in seven innings.
Happ (9-8) didn't waste any time giving New York an early lead, as Brett Gardner led off the game with a home run. New York extended the lead to 2-0 on Francisco Cervelli's two-out RBI single in the fourth inning. The Yankees then went up 3-0 in the fifth inning after Brett Gardner hit a one-out triple and then scored on Jose Reyes' throwing error.
Toronto would rally from the three-run deficit with help from Melky Cabrera, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, who all hit solo home runs.
Happ won for the first time since July 22. Though, he has allowed at least three runs in four straight starts. He will be back on the hill Saturday at Boston.
|J.A. Happ avoids the loss Monday |

(8/25/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ avoided the loss Monday against the Red Sox.
Happ allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out eight and walked two during the outing. Happ got off to a strong start, tossing four scoreless frames to open the game. Things broke open for the Red Sox in the fifth inning. Mookie Betts knocked a solo shot to left for the first run of the inning. After a walk, Happ gave up a two-run shot to Dustin Pedroia. The Blue Jays managed a late comeback, giving Happ the no-decision.
Happ will take on the Yankees in his next start.
|J.A. Happ can't make it out of the fourth inning Tuesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/19/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ couldn't make it out of the fourth inning Tuesday against the Brewers.
Happ allowed four runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two. Problems started almost immediately for Happ. He allowed two straight doubled to open the game. After getting a lineout against the third batter, Happ gave up his third double of the inning to Aramis Ramirez. He was able to get through the second inning without any issues, but ran into trouble again in the third. Two straight doubles drove in the third run of the game, and a sac fly was responsible for the fourth run. Happ came out to start the fourth inning, but was pulled after giving up a single and a walk.
With the loss, Happ fell to 8-8. He'll take on the Red Sox in his next start.
|J.A. Happ gives up five runs in loss vs. Mariners |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/13/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ took a loss Tuesday after allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and one walk in six innings and striking out one in his team's 6-3 defeat against the Mariners.
Happ (8-7) had his worst start of the second half Tuesday, giving up runs in each of his last four innings after tossing two scoreless frames to open the game. He surrendered two home runs in the loss as well. Happ owns a 4.20 ERA and 90:40 K:BB ratio in 109 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Brewers next Tuesday.
|J.A. Happ fans career-high 12 despite tough-luck loss |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/14) Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ struck out a career-high 12 and was hit with a tough-luck loss Thursday night at home against the Orioles, dropping to 8-6 on the year. The right-hander yielded only two runs on five its and one walk over eight innings of a 2-1 defeat.
Over his last four starts covering 26 1/3 innings, Happ has allowed only five earned runs. He owns a 4.09 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over 103 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Tuesday at Seattle.
|J.A. Happ finished 2013 with a 4.56 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 7.5 K/9 in a largely uneven, injury-interrupted season. Happ finished April with a 3.86 ERA and posted a 2.97 ERA in six September starts. But, in between, he gave up 24 earned runs in seven games. Some leeway can be given for his last start before injury (four runs in 1 1/3 IP) and his first start after injury (seven runs in four innings), but Happ is still an erratic 31-year-old who doesn't get enough strikeouts to make up for the yo-yoing of his ratios. Additionally, there's no guarantee that Happ will be in the 2014 rotation (although it seems likely he will be), with several shelved and recovering pitchers coming back from their own injuries. If he's in the rotation, Happ is a late-round gamble in AL-only formats.
