Summary

After another impressive outing, Nestor Curtis was polite when asked about being one of the game’s best pitchers when he said: “I just try to do my part.”

Doing his part means owning the lowest-scoring run average in the majors and giving Curtis another chance to continue his remarkable run when the New York Yankees host the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

Curtis (2-1, 1.35 ERA), who qualified for New York’s 36th round in the 2013 draft, allowed two or more runs scored in 16 starts with teammate Luis Severino (2018) for the team’s second longest streak, a history record held by Ras Ford (1910). -1911) 20 straight starts.

Curtis’ last two starts are the most impressive of the 23 starts of his career. On May 9, Curtis came up with five no-hitters against the Texas Rangers and followed that up Sunday afternoon with one run and three hits in the career-high eight innings of a 5-1 win over Chicago.

The left-hander is leading the Yankees on the one-year anniversary of his second term, with whom he was 5-1 in 2019 with a 5.67 ERA in 33 appearances. After battling five relief missions for the Seattle Mariners in the epidemic in the 2020 season, he returned to the Yankees on May 30 and has since owned 2.44 ERA in 133 innings.

“The possibilities I got, and I could go there and pitch every five days, were incredible for me,” said Curtis. “As long as I can go there and compete and give my team a chance, I’m happy.”

On Sunday, Curtis’ performance marked the fifth time he had scored one or fewer runs this season, giving him a slight lead from Houston’s Justin Verlander in the AL ERA race after he had reached enough innings to qualify.

“He’s one of the best pitchers in the game, going back not only this year, but even last year,” said Yankees manager Aaron Boone. “He’s going to be consistent, reliable and better with us.”

Curtis is pitching after a rare defeat for the Yankees, who rallied to tie the game in the ninth inning before allowing a game-winning, three-run homer to Anthony Santander, who lost 9-6 to Baltimore on Thursday. It ended New York’s four-game winning streak and was its fifth in 28 games.

The White Sox, who lost three of four to the Yankees last weekend, have won 10-6 in their last 16 games and three of five in Kansas City. Chicago ended the series with a 14-hit attack with a 6-4 victory on Thursday.

Lewis Roberts hit a two-run homer and drove four runs on Thursday, hitting .373 (28 for 75) with four homers and 14 RBIs in his last 18 games. Tim Anderson also drove two runs, hitting .390 (-77 for 30) in his last 18 contests.

“He’s just as special as our fans,” said Chicago manager Tony Larusa Anderson. “The more people around the country know this, the better.”

Dallas Cucel (2-2, 5.54), who made no decision after tossing five scoreless innings against the Yankees on Saturday, started the series and drew 4-4 with a 2.06 ERA in 10 careers against New York.

Keuchel has owned a 2.70 ERA in his last four starts since he was tagged for 10 in 11-1 Cleveland on 20 April.
