Anibal Sanchez gave up two runs on five hits and no walks while fanning five over seven innings in Friday's defeat of the Rangers.
Although Sanchez has not been as dominant in the strikeout department as in season's past (8.23 K/9), he has pitched very well this season now sitting 2-2 with a 2.83 ERA and 1.11 WHIP through seven starts. The biggest reason for his success has been the fact he has yet to allow a home run to his opposition, which is a trend he started last season when he gave up just nine long balls. All signs point to continued success as long as he can keep his walks down (14 BB in 35.0 IP). He will be on the hunt for win No. 3 when he takes on the Athletics on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
