    Braves SP Matt Wisler allows four runs in loss Thursday

    Braves starting pitcher Matt Wisler (5-8) gave up four runs on nine hits and a pair of walks in a loss to the Jays on Thursday. He struck out three. The rookie served up a pair of homers, which hasn't generally been his M.O., but he again posted an ugly K:BB, which certainly has been the way of things for him this year. He still hasn't won a game since July 26, but he's given up four-plus runs five times and accumulated seven losses in that span. He'll next get a rematch with the Mets, against whom he turned in practically his only good start in the past two months last Friday.

    Braves' Matt Wisler shows promise, but takes loss vs. Mets Friday

    Braves rookie pitcher Matt Wisler had a solid outing against the Mets on Friday, but with very little run support to speak of, he was left with a tough-luck loss. The youngster allowed two runs on seven hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out six in the 5-1 loss. Wisler (5-7, 5.60 ERA) allowed an RBI double to Yoenis Cespedes in the third inning and then balked in a run in the fifth. Wisler has shown some inconsistency over his brief career thus far, as he has given up five runs or more in four of his last eight starts. But he allowed two runs in each of the other four starts during that span.

    Braves' Matt Wisler torched for seven runs in blowout Thursday

    Braves starter Matt Wisler had a rather forgettable outing against the Nationals on Thursday. The rookie right-hander lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks. Wisler needed 48 pitches (27 strikes) to record his five outs, en route to the 15-1 blowout loss. Wisler (5-6, 5.97 ERA) has really struggled since the calendar turned to August. Over his last seven starts, he has allowed 32 earned runs over 31 1/3 innings of work, leading to a gaudy 9.20 ERA. He also owns a 18:20 K:BB ratio over that stretch.

    Braves SP Matt Wisler denied run support in Saturday loss

    Braves starter Matt Wisler needed to be near-perfect Saturday against the Yankees. He was merely good - and that wasn't good enough. Wisler yielded two runs on four hits in six innings with four walks and four strikeouts. That was two runs too many as his team got blanked during his stint in the game. The lone runs against him scored on a wild pitch in the first and RBI double by Didi Gregorius in the seventh. Wisler bounced back quite well from a horrible performance last Sunday, when he allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Cubs.
