The right-hander has been especially good lately, throwing seven or more scoreless innings in three of his last four games away from home, according to ESPN.com.
“It’s just worked out that way so far.
It’s kind of one of those things,” Hutchison said.
“I haven’t had many starts at home, so that might be part of it.
But the rest of that, I could really care less as long as we’re going out there and giving the team a chance to win.” David Phelps (2-4, 4.32) takes the mound six days after what he called one of the best starts of his career.
He yielded two hits over 6 2/3 innings in a 7-0 win at Oakland on Friday after posting a 6.57 ERA in four straight losses, according to ESPN.com.
