Bello (12-10) took the loss Wednesday, allowing eight runs on eight hits and four walks over three innings in a 15-5 loss against the Rangers. He struck out two.
It was a brutal outing for Bello, who was tagged for a season-high eight runs. The Rangers did most of their damage in the second inning, scoring six runs on six hits, including a pair of homers. Coming into the day, Bello hadn't allowed more than three runs in his last six starts. His ERA is now up to 4.11 with a 1.32 WHIP and 129:43 K:BB across 27 starts (151 innings) this year. For whatever reason, Bello has struggled in day games: he sports a 6.94 ERA in 10 day games compared to a 2.80 ERA in 17 night starts. Bello will likely get one more turn in the rotation this season -- he's currently scheduled for a home matchup with the Rays early next week.
