Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler escaped with a no-decision in Game 1 of Saturday's double-header, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits. He gave up at least four runs in each of his last three starts, but Koehler's 4.15 ERA on the season as a starter will keep him in consideration for a spot at the back of the Marlins rotation in 2016.
Marlins starting pitcher Tom Koehler collected his 11th win of the season Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings to beat the Braves. The veteran right-hander struggled with command once again, walking five batters against two strikeouts. He managed to keep things close enough for the Miami offense to get a win. Koelher has won two of his last three starts, despite posting a miserable 12:11 strikeout-to-walk rate over 17 2/3 innings. He'll head into his final start of the season Saturday in Philadelphia with an even 4.00 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 132 strikeouts over 182 1/3 innings pitched.
Marlins starter Tom Koehler (10-14) surrendered seven hits, four runs (three earned) and three walks in five innings in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Phillies. He struck out five. The veteran right-hander has actually turned in a strong September, with Tuesday's outing being the first non-quality start of his four trips to the mound during the month. Koehler failed to get past the fifth inning for the first time since an Aug. 19 outing against the Brewers and also gave up a homer for the first time in September. He fell victim Tuesday to the double whammy of not being able to miss many bats (only five swings-and-misses over 94 pitches) and struggling with his control. Koehler has given up at least two or more walks in 11 out of his last 15 starts, and the 14 free passes he's issued in September are his second-highest monthly total in the category in the 2015 season.
Marlins starter Tom Koehler gave up just one run on five hits while walking four and striking out four over six innings against the Mets on Tuesday. Just 55 of his 102 pitches went for strikes, but Koehler was somehow able to navigate the Mets' lineup to great effect. His 3.90 ERA is noticeably lower than his 4.45 FIP or his 4.56 xFIP and his 6.59 K/9 ranks in the bottom 20 among qualified starters. That said, he has an appealing matchup in his next start Tuesday at home against the Phillies.
Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler had one of his best performances of the season during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Brewers. Koehler struck out a season-high 10 batters while giving up two runs over eight innings of work. He also allowed four hits and walked two. Koehler improved to 9-13 with a 3.99 ERA on the season. Prior to Wednesday's win, Koehler had lost seven out of his last eight outings.
