Urena allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over 4.2 innings Friday while striking out three, but he didn't factor into the decision in a 10-2 loss to the Brewers.

The Marlins' bullpen collapsed in the eighth inning, but Urena was no threat to stick around long enough to get a decision, needing 101 pitches (55 strikes) to get his 14 outs. The right-hander's control is flagging down the stretch, as he now has a 20:13 K:BB in 27 innings over his last five starts, and while he's avoided serious damage so far, fatigue is likely a factor -- the 151.2 innings Urena has tossed in 2017 are the most he's accumulated since he worked 162 in 2014 at Double-A. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Mets.
