Bauer didn't factor into the decision in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. He gave up one run on four hits and four walks while fanning seven across 4.1 innings.
Bauer had quite a few issues with his command and walked a season-high four batters, but he limited the damage to a solo shot by Jason Heyward in the fourth. The right-hander continues to be a strikeout machine this season, having fanned at least seven in all but one of his seven starts. He owns a 58:12 K:BB through 44.1 innings in 2021.
