Monday Bird Droppings: Home for the Fourth of July

Good morning, Birdland!

Tyler Wells is only getting better, somehow. The reliever-turned-starter is on fire, showing up once again in a 3-1 win over the Twins on Sunday. He has allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last four starts, has won five straight starts, and has lowered his season ERA to 3.09.

Since the start of May, Wells has made 12 starts. In those starts his ERA is 2.59, and he has a .198/.244/.326 batting line against. He has largely done this by pitching to contact (40 strikeouts in 62.2 innings). But he mixed up the formula in his most recent start, striking out seven, a season high.
