Ryan Yarbrough: Soothes concerns with latest start
Yarbrough, who took his sixth loss against the Tigers on Saturday while giving up four earned runs on five hits over six innings and recording four strikeouts, nevertheless impressed manager Kevin Cash with the way he overcame early adversity in the outing, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. "The frustration certainly could have mounted the way the last couple of games have gone, but he did a good job keeping his composure, keeping us in the ballgame," Cash said. "He got the cutter going. He mixed in some more breaking balls. Three-run homers are tough to overcome, certainly in the first inning."
