Iwakuma pitched eight scoreless innings Saturday, allowing three hits and two walks with six strikeouts.

Iwakuma loaded the bases in the first inning with no outs on two singles and a walk but escaped unscathed. He then retired 10 of his next 11 and then his final 13 batters. He mixed an ineffective splitter, a 93 mph fastball and an improved curve. He stayed away from the slider that gave him trouble in his last start. This was Iwakuma's best start since last August. He needed it.

Iwakuama gave up five runs on eight hits -- including four homers -- in his return to the mound Monday night against the Tigers.

Matching up against a Tigers lineup without Miguel Cabrera, Iwakuma's mistakes were consistently hammered in his first start since April. Through four starts this season, he's sitting with a 7.17 ERA and nine homers allowed in 21.1 innings. He's scheduled to make one more start before the All-Star break, and it will take place Saturday at home against the Angels.
