Kevin Correia fell to 5-12 after allowing four runs in four innings as the Twins lost 5-3 to the Rays on Sunday.

Correia had been on a roll, lowering his ERA from 6.11 to 4.61 over his last seven starts. The Rays stopped his momentum, pounding out seven hits and drawing three walks. The right-hander also struck out four. He'll take a 4.76 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, and a 54/29 K/BB ratio into Friday's home start against the White Sox.

Kevin Correia tossed six innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Twins' 9-3 win over the Rockies.

Correia flirted with danger, yielding seven hits and a walk while striking out just one batter, but he operated well in situations that required damage control to earn a victory in his final start of the season's first half. He's 5-11 with a 4.61 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.

Kevin Correia gave up two earned runs in seven innings in a loss to the Mariners on Monday.

The veteran right-hander has now posted quality starts in five of his last six outings, a stretch that has slashed his ERA to 4.79. Correia logged a 6.11 ERA through his first 12 outings, but has collected a 2.43 ERA during the aforementioned six-start stretch. That's the good news. The bad is that the loss ties him with San Diego's Eric Stults for the most in the majors with 11. Correia closes out the first half with a rough matchup; he's in Colorado on Saturday.

Kevin Correia was dealt a tough-luck loss Wednesday, surrendering just two runs on six hits and two walks over six frames against the Royals.

It was a nice showing from Correia, but Jason Vargas was simply a bit better. The veteran right-hander has now posted quality starts in four of his last five outings to lower his ERA to 4.95, which is the lowest it's been since his first start of the season. Correia will try to keep it going next week in Seattle and Colorado.

Kevin Correia gave up four earned runs in six innings in a 5-4 loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Correia surrendered two runs in the first and two in the fifth as his record fell to 4-9. He walked two and struck out three. Though his ERA is still north of five (5.08), he had only allowed two earned runs in his previous three starts. For the month of June, he's posted a 2.74 ERA. He'll try to get back on track against the Royals as the calender turns to July.

Kevin Correia held the White Sox to two runs (one earned) over six innings Saturday as part of a victory.

Correia gave up an RBI single to Jose Abreu in the first inning and hit Gordon Beckham with a pitch with the bases loaded in the second inning, but he managed to avoid trouble the rest of the way. He struck out two and walked two in the victory. The veteran right-hander has allowed one run or fewer in three out of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 6.34 to 5.02 in the process, but he shouldn't be trusted in most fantasy leagues.

Kevin Correia limited the Red Sox to one run in six innings Monday, but still fell to 3-8 on the season.

Correia's night could have ended a lot differently, as David Ortiz didn't miss a three-run homer in the sixth by much. Still, this makes two straight effective starts for him, as he's lowered his ERA from 6.11 to 5.19. It enhances his job security, but we still think the Twins would be better off moving on.

Kevin Correia improved to 3-7, shutting out the Blue Jays over six innings as the Twins won 4-0 on Tuesday.

This was about as good as Correia has looked all season. The right-hander entered the match with a 6.11 ERA and was up against the bombardiers that make up the Jays' lineup, but escaped unscathed. He allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out one. In the process, he lowered his ERA to 5.60 and now has a 38/15 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings. He'll face the Red Sox on the road next.

Correia will face the powerhouse Blue Jays' offense in his next start on the road.

Kevin Correia yielded one run over six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Yankees.

Correia didn't appear long for the game after loading the bases with nobody out in the first inning, but he managed to escape without allowing a run. His only mistake on the afternoon was a solo homer from Yangervis Solarte in the fourth. This was just the third time in 11 starts that Correia had allowed fewer than three runs in a start this season. He remains a very poor fantasy bet.
