Happ struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.63 ERA and 1.30 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Happ has won all three of his starts in August with a 1.45 ERA. It's quite a turnaround after he went 0-3 with a 6.00 ERA in his final four starts of July. His 20 career wins in August are his most in any month, and his 3.62 career ERA in August is his second-best behind September.

Happ struck out five, ending the game with a 3.77 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Happ has now won consecutive starts for the first time since June and was coming off a dominant seven-inning outing on Wednesday, in which he struck out 10 and held the White Sox to one run. The veteran lefty next takes the mound Sunday at Pittsburgh's PNC Park, where he's posted a 2.97 ERA in 11 career starts.
|Aug. 2 2:52 PM PT3:52 PM MT4:52 PM CT5:52 PM ET17:52 ET21:52 GMT5:52 2:52 PM MST4:52 PM EST5:22 PM VEN1:52 UAE (+1)4:52 PM CT-J.A.

Happ struck out three, ending the game with a 4.13 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Though a lack of offensive support is a big reason why Happ has won just once in his last six starts, this loss was largely of his own doing. The 20-game winner from 2016 hasn't been very good lately, having allowed six homers in 15 innings while going 0-2 with a 6.60 ERA over his last three outings.
|July 19 7:30 AM PT8:30 AM MT9:30 AM CT10:30 AM ET10:30 ET14:30 GMT22:30 7:30 AM MST9:30 AM EST10:00 AM VEN18:30 UAE9:30 AM CT-J.A.

|June 30 7:39 AM PT8:39 AM MT9:39 AM CT10:39 AM ET10:39 ET14:39 GMT22:39 7:39 AM MST9:39 AM EST10:09 AM VEN18:39 UAE9:39 AM CT-J.A.

The 2016 20-game winner is 2-1 with a 2.10 ERA over that stretch and hasn't allowed a home run in any of those outings, which bodes well for his chances when he faces the power-hitting Yankees on the road Tuesday.
|June 24 9:19 PM PT10:19 PM MT11:19 PM CT12:19 AM ET0:19 ET4:19 GMT12:19 9:19 PM MST11:19 PM EST11:49 PM VEN8:19 UAE11:19 PM CT-Happ allowed one run on four hits in 6.2 innings as the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Kansas City Royals 5-4 on Friday.

Analysis: Happ struggled in his only rehab start, giving up three runs and seven hits in three innings for Class-A Dunedin on Thursday.
