Kevin Correia lets win slip away vs. Royals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Twins starting pitcher Kevin Correia had a pretty strong outing Sunday against the Royals, but couldn't earn the win in a 4-3 victory for Minnesota. Correia allowed three runs on six hits and one walk, while striking out two in seven-plus innings.

Correia was able to keep up with Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas for most of the afternoon. Both pitchers exchanged zeroes until Minnesota took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Correia came back out for the eighth inning, but he issued a leadoff walk to Mike Moustakas. Lorenzo Cain followed with a single and Alcides Escobar then added a bunt single. Moustakas scored on Escobar's bunt single thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Trevor Plouffe. Correia was lifted from the game after Escobar's single, but he would be charged with two more runs as Cain and Escobar would both score.

Correia avoided taking the loss as Minnestoa plated two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to take the lead for good. Correia, who has a 5.30 ERA, will be back on the hill Saturday in a rematch with the Royals.

Kevin Correia pitches well, but bad luck costs him win

Correja surrendered three runs, including two earned, on five hits in six innings against the White Sox. He walked one and fanned five and appeared set for the win when his team entered the ninth inning with a 6-4 lead.

He didn't seem long for the game in the second inning, however, when he gave up four consecutive hits, including a two-run double by Alexei Ramirez, to fall behind 3-0. But he yielded just one hit and one walk in the next four innings combined while his team fought back to take the lead.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Correia had to endure a long wait between the first and second innings due to a four-run frame by his offense. "I felt fine," Correia told MLB.com. "There was a long wait in between the first inning and second inning, which is kind of tough with it being your first inning back out there, but I managed to work around it a little bit like I would during the season. For the most part, my stuff felt pretty good."

Correia used all his pitches in the three-inning outing. "I'm just trying to get command and control of all of them," Correia told MLB.com. "I want to be confident and be able to throw all my pitches at any count by the time we get out of here."

Correia posted his first losing season in five years in 2013, going 9-13 with a 4.18 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 101:45 K:BB ratio in 185 1/3 innings.
