|July 18, in a 4-3 win over the Athletics. The third of five pitchers on the night, he allowed one hit in two-thirds of a scoreless inning, striking out one. Of eight pitches thrown, all of them were for strikes. Coming on to start the bottom of the eighth in relief of right-handed reliever Erasmo Ramirez, he struck out Jaycob Brugman swinging before Rajai Davis singled to center. Marcus Semien then grounded into a force out to second base before right-handed reliever Adam Kolarek came on for Kittredge to finish out the inning.|
|Kittredge, who saw some time in his new organization's big league camp this past spring as a non-roster invitee, is in his seventh pro season, the first six of which were spent with the Mariners. In both 2015 and 2016, he split the season between Jackson (Double-A) and Tacoma (Triple-A), going 3-3 with a 3.50 ERA in 37 games in 2016, striking out 84 and walking 19 in 72 innings and 2-2 with a 4.32 ERA in 36 games in 2015, fanning 60 in 75 innings while walking 29. Over his minor league career, he's combined for a 21-13 record and 4.15 ERA in 216 games, striking out 418 in 394 2/3 innings while walking 130 and giving up 432 hits for a .276 average against, but his Rays debut season has been by far his best campaign to date and it earned him The Call.|
