Athletics starter Sonny Gray allows three runs in five IP for loss
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Athletics starter Sonny Gray (4-2) yielded three runs on seven hits in five innings Tuesday to take the loss against the Astros.
Gray served up a homer to Chris Carter in the second inning -- a two-run shot that hit the facade.
"Yeah stuff was OK, fastball wasn't great," Gray said. "Left a few balls up and that was it."
After winning his first four decisions of the year, Gray has now dropped his last two.
Gray's next start is scheduled for Sunday in Tampa Bay.
Athletics' Sonny Gray throws gem, takes first loss Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray was stuck with his first loss Wednesday despite allowing just one earned run on three hits in seven innings while striking out nine and walking none in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Red Sox.
Gray (4-1) gave up a leadoff single in the second inning and watched the runner advance to second on a wild pitch with one out before scoring on a two-out single. He allowed another single in the third and was perfect over the remainder of his outing, but the damage was done.
Gray owns a 1.61 ERA and 53:15 K:BB ratio in 56 innings. He'll square off with the Astros in Houston Tuesday.
Athletics starter Sonny Gray take no-decision despite six strong IP
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray allowed one run on six hits and fanned nine in six innings Friday to take a no-decision against the Mariners.|
Gray has now given up just four runs over his last 27 2/3 innings (1.30 ERA) with 32 strike outs.
Gray's next start is set for Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Athletics P Sonny Gray strikes out 10 to improve to 4-0
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/3/15) Athletics starter Sonny Gray continued his strong start to the 2015 season, striking out 10 batters to lead Oakland to a 7-1 triumph over the Rangers on Sunday.
Gray moved to 4-0 on the year with relative ease, going 6 2/3 innings and allowing just two hits. He did battle with wildness, however, walking seven batters, which raised his pitch total to 119.
"Sonny doesn't have anything, he's still one of the best pitchers in baseball," said catcher Stephen Vogtt to MLB.com. "He did not feel good today, and that's an understatement. He was not himself. The ball wasn't moving like it normally does. Didn't have a sinker. Didn't have a fastball, for that matter. Kinda just threw whatever he was throwing. He's just so good at manipulating the ball and making it move when he doesn't feel good."
Gray lowered his ERA on the season to 1.67, which is good for sixth in the AL, and his four wins are tied for the top spot in the league.
A's starter Sonny Gray notches another strong outing to move to 3-0
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/29/15) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray (3-0) allowed two runs on six hits in eight innings on Tuesday to pick up the win over the Angels.|
It was Gray's second consecutive strong performance as he allowed just one run in seven innings to earn the win in his last start.
Despite the strong outing, Gray's ERA jumped from 1.91 to 1.98 in the win.
Gray's next start is set for Sunday in Texas.
|2014 summary: Sonny Gray proved to be less of a strikeout pitcher in his sophomore season than he was as a rookie, but he turned out to be nearly as effective. Averaging 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings, Gray relied on ground ball outs to quell the opposition, and with 21 double play balls and a .212 batting average allowed on grounders, he did just that. Gray was also a workhorse for the Athletics, making 33 starts and pitching 219 innings. He went 14-10 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Especially with Jon Lester and Jeff Samardzija out of the rotation, the A's will rely even more on Gray to provide innings, and he should occupy a spot at or near the top of their rotation.
2015 outlook: Gray was a top 25 starter last season, but if owners draft him as such this year, they could end up disappointed. He was probably fortunate to have given up just five home runs on the road last season, and with Josh Donaldson and Jed Lowrie departed from the A's infield, Gray may not prevent as many ground ball base hits. Instead of reaching for Gray as a No. 2 starter, think of him as more of a middle-of-the-rotation type for the middle rounds in standard mixed leagues.
