Bad luck bites Frankie Montas in A's loss to Royals

OAKLAND, Calif. — Frankie Montas didn’t deserve the loss. Stuff-wise, numbers-wise, his start Thursday night was one of his best of the season. He retired 13 straight in six scoreless innings, but succumbed to an unlucky sequence in the A’s 6-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals at the Coliseum.

Athletics' Frankie Montas: Takes unfortunate loss

Montas (6-6) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Royals, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits across 6.1 innings. He struck out eight. Montas has gone 1-4 over his last five starts, but he owns a 3.54 ERA and impressive peripheral stats in that span -- 1.32 WHIP, 10.9 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9 -- meaning he's pitched better than what his ERA indicates of late. He might have just two quality starts since the beginning of May, but Montas has been remarkably consistent on the mound. His next start is scheduled for next week at home against the Angels.

Athletics' Frankie Montas: Earns win Friday

Montas (6-5) notched the win against Colorado on Friday, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out two.

He'll carry a 4.52 ERA into his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come at home against Kansas City on Thursday.

Athletics' Frankie Montas: Tough loss Saturday

Montas (5-5) took the loss Saturday as the A's were downed 4-0 by the Angels, giving up four unearned runs on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings. He struck out seven. With the game still scoreless in the top of the fifth inning and runners on the corners, David Fletcher hit a grounder to Matt Olson, who threw home attempting to cut down the runner from third. Aramis Garcia couldn't handle the toss and was charged with an error, ending Montas' shutout bid, and the rest of the Angels' runs came later that inning with two outs. The right-hander still saw his ERA fall to 4.45, and he'll take a 63:17 K:BB through 58.2 innings into his next outing.

A’s cruise to sixth straight win, beating Detroit Tigers 3-0 behind Frankie Montas

There was leisure to Frankie Montas’ outing on Friday night against the Detroit Tigers, a confident mound presence that indicated he knew he was in control of the game. The A’s 28-year-old right-handed starter put his mindset on display in the top of the third when he allowed a slow-rolling infield single to his former teammate, Robbie Grossman, one of only two hits he allowed all night. After Grossman reached, Montas laughed. He twirled the ball in his hand. He was simply in command of the game.

Frankie Montas to make 2021 debut against team that traded him; Lauraeno, Murphy could return against Dodgers

Frankie Montas had a tumultuous path back into the rotation, but the right-hander said he’s more than ready for his first start of the 2021 season. Alate arrival to camp this spring as he dealt with COVID-19, Montas took a longer path to getting fully stretched out for the regular season. A ripped cuticle on the middle finger of his throwing hand suffered at spring’s end didn’t help, either.
