The start was a nice rebound after he lasted just 0.2 innings his last start. While his ERA is not spectacular he has given up more than three earned runs in just one start, and boasts a great 10.72 K/9… After criticizing Jankowski yesterday for his lack of slugging percentage, Travis hit his first extra-base hit in two weeks with a line drive triple.
