Hit with ninth loss
PBaltimore Orioles
August 20, 2019
Means (8-9) took the loss Monday, giving up three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks over five innings while striking out four as the Orioles fell 5-4 to the Royals.
ANALYSIS
The southpaw continues to struggle in the second half. Means is now 1-5 in six starts since the All-Star break with a 7.48 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB through 27.2 innings, and Monday's outing was the first time during that stretch he didn't serve up a homer. He'll look to turn things around in his next start Saturday, at home against the Rays.
