Odorizzi (4-5) pitched eight-scoreless innings, but walked away with a no-decision in Friday's 13-inning affair against the A's. He allowed five hits and struck out five. The 26-year-old was dealing Friday, but was matched every step of the way by his counterpart Sean Manaaea, leaving Odorizzi with nothing to show for his best outing of the season. After having just 10 in all of last season, Odorizzi already has a MLB-leading 12 no-decisions in 2016. In six of his no-decisions, he has allowed one run or less. Talk about hard luck, Odorizzi is 13-14 since 2015 and has received just 24 runs in his 14 losses. The right-hander will try again Friday when he takes on the Yankees, a team he lost to 2-1 back on May 29.
Odorizzi (4-5) allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings Sunday, striking out seven, to pick up the win over the Orioles. It was Odorizzi's first quality start since June 19 and just his seventh on the season in 20 trips to the mound. He threw 65 of 100 pitches for strikes and generated 17 swinging strikes, with his only real mistake getting deposited in the left field seats by Pedro Alvarez, but serving up homers has been Odorizzi's Achilles heel all year. He'll get his next start Friday in Oakland.
Odorizzi (3-5) gave up four runs on six hits and a walk over five innings Sunday, striking out four, in a loss to the Red Sox. He wasn't particularly sharp, throwing 52 of 86 pitches for strikes and generating just six swinging strikes, but with David Price dealing for Boston, Odorizzi would have needed to be just about perfect to have a shot at a win. He's managed just one quality start over his last six outings, adding a full run to his ERA over that stretch to send it soaring to a season-high 4.47 heading into the All-Star break.
Odorizzi (3-4) was tagged for a season-high seven runs on nine hits while walking two and striking out four over 5.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels. The right-hander's inconsistency this season is enough to drive owners insane. Odorizzi was sporting a fine-looking 3.36 ERA through the season's first two months, but then posted a 4.96 ERA in June, and now got blasted in his first start of July. Over the past three seasons, he's been historically worse in the second half of the year, and his performance in recent weeks would indicate more of the same is on the way.
Odorizzi (3-3) allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out seven over five innings, but received no decision Thursday against the Tigers. Odorizzi was staked to a five-run lead through five innings before giving up a pair of runs before retiring a hitter in the sixth inning, forcing his exit from the contest. Unfortunately, the bullpen blew his three-run lead, keeping him from a potential victory. He's now failed to post a quality start in four of his last five outings, and his ERA is at 3.91 on the year. He'll make his next start Tuesday against the Angels.
