Chacin (14-7) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk across five innings Tuesday to take the loss against the Cubs. He struck out five.

Chacin threw first-pitch strikes to 12 of 18 batters as he tossed 72 percent of his pitches for strikes. He allowed a pair of runs following his own throwing error in the second inning, which was enough to sink him to a loss as Jose Quintana pitched a gem on the other side. Chacin was coming off a bumpy outing against this same Cubs lineup, but he's gone at least five innings while allowing three earned runs or fewer in six of his last seven turns. He'll take a solid 3.54 ERA and 1.20 WHIP into his next scheduled start against the Reds.
