New York Yankees starting pitcher J.A. Happ has quietly been on a solid run in September and that continued on Wednesday against the Rays. Happ entered the game in the second inning after opener Jonathan Loaisiga and went on to pitch five innings, allowing four hits, one walk and one earned run while striking out six. Happ now has a 1.65 ERA with 28 strikeouts and nine walks over 27 1/3 innings in September. While he's likely done pitching for the regular season, the impressive showing in September bodes well for Happ and the Yankees in the postseason.
New York Yankees starter J.A. Happ continued his disappointing 2019 campaign in Oakland Wednesday night, getting tagged with his eighth loss of the year. The veteran couldn't record an out in the fifth, officially pitching just four innings and surrendering five runs on four hits and two walks. He was given an early lead but quickly gave up a pair of home runs in consecutive innings. The 36-year-old has recorded just two quality starts in the last three months, but has still managed to record 10 wins behind a strong offense.
New York Yankees starter J.A. Happ emerged victorious Wednesday afternoon as his club picked up their 16th consecutive victory against the Baltimore Orioles.

He would toss just five innings, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks. The game would be won by the Yankees, 6-5, as Happ improved his season record to 10-7.
