Saddled with sixth loss
PKansas City Royals
July 21, 2019
Sparkman (3-6) took the loss after yielding four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out one over 5.2 innings Sunday against Cleveland.
ANALYSIS
Sparkman's offense provided him with an early 2-0 lead, but he gave up two runs in the third followed by two more in the sixth before exiting his outing. The 27-year-old right-hander tossed a complete-game shutout in his last start, but he wasn't able to carry that momentum into Sunday's series finale. He'll enter his next outing with a 4.67 ERA and 43 strikeouts over 79 innings.
