Swanson served as the opener in a win over the Tigers on Thursday and fired two scoreless innings during which he allowed a walk and recorded three strikeouts. He did not factor into the decision.
It took a matchup against the most offensively inept team in the majors, but Swanson was at least able to get a rare taste of success. The 25-year-old has been better since returning to the majors after allowing a total of 15 earned runs over 7.2 innings across his last two starts before a May 17 demotion. Factoring in Thursday's outing, Swanson has surrendered three earned runs over six innings while serving as an opener on three occasions following a July 16 promotion. Jul 26 6:33 am (EST)
